Hello Monika, some may think he is cute maybe others will think this is ugly :-) I'm pleased that you think for former as he has his qualities. I like the POV here and the lighting is pretty good too. In one way, with those antennae he does look a little like a demented rabbit :-)
Maybe that's why he was in your room, he had detected your perfume?
Very well done, thank you for posting.

This is superb Monika. I thought it might have been a bat!! What a find, So are you going to mind him all winter, do they live that long and in the cold weather? Great macro, well done. TFS.

So you took a picture while I was visiting you, how cute...
:) I LOVE THIS! So cool, I wish this guy was a foot long and he could be my pet!
Could be Lymantria dispar (after seeing the WS), a known pest for apple trees. Are they some aplle trees or plum trees around your house?
Very nice the POV, giving a detailed sight of the antennae.

Excellent macro shot on this moth. Your flash did a good job here on the exposure. The colors and detail look great. Very interesting looking guy with what would be a winter coat on a mammal.

Very good sharpness, detail & exposure Monika. Very well composed and I like the curved surface I see that it's resting on.
Very well done. Thank You!

What a beautiful close up shot!! This butterfly looks like the little phantastic animal that we can see in the "Gremlins" movie! The light and colour are phantastic! Well done. Cheers

Good to see your work again Monika, I really should spend more time on this site. This is stunning, the detail in the antennae is superb...well done.
Been away for a while, or I would have picked this one up sooner. This is a male Pale Tussock Calliteara pudibunda, more famous for the outrageous caterpillar! This is a very late specimen, but I am 100% certain of the species. There's a nice series of pics here.
Have a very Happy New Year.
Catch up time again!!
Great capture, good detail and sharpness. Great POV, exposure and composition. As always, sweet and perfect.
I hope you had a good celebration for new Years. ;)
Thanks for posting, have a good week.

Perfect. This is a superb macro shot. Your POV and angle of approach making the most use of the limited DOF. Tack sharp and nice contrasts.
