Beautiful moth Paulo, Your efforts paid off well. Great use of flash under very difficult night-time conditions..I've been checking my porch lamp every night and early morning in the hope of finding a colorful moth there myself..We have some very large ones here in Texas..
Great colors and details, Well done.

That is indeed a beautiful moth, Paulo. All your efforts to go in search of it were worthwhile and well rewarded. The flash is doing a good job of showing the gorgeous colors. Very crisp focus. Great pick of BG as the green leaf offers a sharp contrast to the pinks and oranges of the insect. Very well done and TFS. : )

Paulo, great macro about a Deilephila elpenor. Excellent colours, light and good sharpness. Great work. Thanks for sharing.
- oh, i sea, my daughter is wrong, it´s not a moth ---- it´s a butterfly!!!! This butterfly is a "Sphingidae". His name Deilephila elpenor, in german "Mittlerer Weinschwärmer".

Wow, taken at night also, your use of the flash on this photo worked very well, Paulo.
Excellent details, colors, and POV.
Well done and TFS.
Paulo, wonderful shot and well worth the effort you put into getting it. Those colours are amazing so wonderful exposure and good use of flash. Very nice sharpness and definition too. What is your moth trap like? I'm trying to make one myself. I'd love to see this species, I'm quite jealous but well done and TFS :)

Hello Paulo, very nice shot of this moth. The colours are excellent and it's a rare thing to see one in light such as this. I've only ever seen one before.
Did you use noise reduction? I ask as the details on the thorax looks a little odd...perhaps this is me?
Well done on this capture.

Oi o Paulo, esta traça está muito muito bonita. Isto para lembrar meu algo muito especial que eu para ver na floresta alguns anos atrás, com uma forma semelhante para esta beleza que você nos apresenta. A harmonia das linhas é adorável. Os contrastes excelentes. A iluminação favorece muito bem a variação do tom da traça, a imagem tem claridade muito boa, grande trabalho, parabéns. Saludos Cordiales. *Ninfa Urania*
Vi que você é especialista em "mariposas"(pt-Brasil)! Gostei muito dessa foto, cores, ângulo e nitidez estão excelentes!!
Valeu pela correção na "Strange Moth"

Well done on capturing this rare moth.
Great colours and excellent detail here.
For a night shot,the quality is very impressive.
A very informative note too.
hola paulo, el uso del flash no le quito a esta fotografia. que hermosos detalles. me gusta mucho la forma de esta polilla. yo pensaria que es una mariposa nocturna, por el tronco del cuerpo tan peludo y grueso. Parabens pelo bom trabalho, um abraco,
Was difficult to choose the better photo for me, all are great you are a good photographer nice work but this it’s my favorite you make an exc macro!! Well done Paulo
Você está com boas macros. Esta está ótima. Muito boa difinição e cores. Bom POV.
Ohhh a wonderful picture with this unknown for me creature.
Nice capture, great butterfly, well seen and done. TFS.
MAGNIFICA ESFINGE ROJA COMPARTIMOS LOS GUSTOS LO PONGO EN MIS FAVORITOS
wow! shape and colors are incredible.
what a beautiful moth!!what a great shot!:)colours are awesome.good sharpness and nice composition.
thank you for sharing.
What a great image of this moth that looks like an orange stealth bomber.
Great focus on and nice contrasting background.
This is a very beautiful moth.
Sharp and clear shot.
Good job and TFS.
You have a very nice serie of butterfly. I choose this one because i find it very beautifull. It's a kind of butterfly that we can't see here in Quebec. I like the contrast between the leave and the butterfly. Good details too. Very well done.
Have a nice day.
I just found out recently that moth also very colorful. So sad that we only can see this beautiful moth only at night. A great work.
I know this species well. You have captured it really well and the colours are excellent for a nighttime shot.
I noticed a number of other moths in your collection, I shall have to find few more hours in the day, to come and visit them... possibly tomorrow evening.
Hi Paulo ,
A lovely macro capture , what can be said other than this is amazing shot with sharpness , BG , composition is totaly 100%. Love this pic.
Oh, comme c'est étrange! Il s'est habillé pour une fête techno?!!! Bravo pour ce magnifique cliché
Amazing colors here, really catched my eyes.
great photograph, I think its perfect!
Nice shot. Here in Poland it's one of the most popular moths from Sphingidae ;-D
Esta é magnífica Paulo!!! bem tento mas nunca encontrei esta maravilha, parabéns, FABULOSA!!!
It's nice macro shot & beautiful baterfly.
Have to be honest moths are not my favourite but this one caught my eye. Very colourfull. Nice background against leaf makes it stand out. I think maybe it might stand out more if you cropped it to so its just sat on leaf without distraction of top right corner. TFS Allan
Great picture of this moth. Great color with sharp details.
very beautiful moth. The colors are stunning and the silky smooth texture it has on its body is nice. TFS.
Preciosa mariposa y preciosa foto.

Another beautiful picture of yours! I like the way the radiant ribs of the leaf support the composition. Colors are also excellent and make good contrast because they are complementary. Very good job! Congratulations and TFS!
