Siento no tener tiempo para deciros más (me estoy arriesgando a un grito por parte de mi familia).
Un fuerte abrazo a todos.
Os deseo lo mejor.


I'm so so sorry for having yo so forgotten and having no much time to tell you more right now. I've got my family waiting for me. These days have been of too much work and I couldn't even put a word to wish you a merry Christmas. But I have had you all in my thought with my best wishes.
I wish you all the best in 2009.
Best regards

Hi Maite,
Magnificent close up.Exposure is spot on,focus couldn't be better.Details,sharpness and lighting are also excellent.
I wish Happy New Year for you and your family.
Thanks for posting.

Maite, we have been missing you here on TN.
Thanks for making your appearance at the turn of the year with such a wonderful Moth picture. I like your unusual POV from which the subject looks very elegant.
I too wish you and your family the new year 2009 full of peace, prosperity and joy.
Keep happy but not too much busy.

You do know that posting every day..like I try to do,, takes something away from quality...but I think I may be OCD on this by now....and on the other hand..Your images are always well done and well thought out and well identified and excused for absence:-)
Happy New Year...and I hope Santa really brought you what you wanted for Christmas..

Hi, dear Maite.
It is very nice that you have visit TN in this special day and shared warm of your heart and superb piece of photo art. My heartfelt wishes to you in New Year, happiness, healthiness and prosperities and, of course, more free time for us, your admirers. Simply great close-up with terrific details of the moth. I am amazed with reproduction of moth texture and other its charming features. Framing of the scene, pleasantness of the green colours of the surroundings are fine too. Bravo.
Yours Alexei.

Hi Maite,happy new year to you too and thanks a lot fot this pic and for you very interesting 2008's gallery! Buon Anno,Luciano

Hallo Maite
It was good to see your name and delightful image on the gallery after such a long absence. This is really a gorgeous image with lots of detail to appreciate, and indeed a feast to the eye. This moth is shaped perfectly and the combination of dirty pink and yellow on its wings is spectacular. Good framing, good lighting and focus. Great clarity applied on the details, especially the fine hair on the body and lining of the wings, and not to mention the very interesting antennas. A splendid presentation. Best regards and I truly hope you won’t just disappear again for such a long time.

Hola Maite,
cuanto tiempo¡¡¡¡
espero que el 2009 se porte bien contigo.
preciosa macro, nitidez y hermoso encuadre,
me imagino el frío que debe hacer por esas tierras, pero claro siempre tendrás Fuerteventura, :))
muchos saludos

Ciao Maite,
non avevo visto questa tua bellissima immagine di falena per augurare un felice anno nuovo, di cui ricambio gli auguri a te e ai tuoi familiari, spero che l'anno sia iniziato bene; eccellenti POV e composizione che mostrano molto bene le caratteristiche di questo maschio catturato con ottima definizione, molto belli e naturali i colori e l'ambientazione.

Hola Maite,
Feliz Año tambien para tí!
Yo tampoco tuve tiempo de felicitar la navidad ni subir nada acorde a estas fechas.
Un excelente macro el que nos regalas esta vez, una delicia para los ojos.
Da gusto cuando una imagen tiene esa buena luz e increíbles detalles.
En este caso, la polilla parece llevar un suave abrigo encima, al menos esa es la sensación que da a la vista.
Enhorabuena por la foto y recibe un abrazo grande de mi parte.

Hola Maite,

Moth attacks again. :) I think this is one of Your favorite photographed themes, and You do it quite well. Very nice close-up portrait, great sharpness and DOF. I personally should have cropped a bit from the bottom, but it's nothing more than personal taste (or maybe called 'style'?), Your photo's good as it is. Tfs and congrats.

Very happy New Year to You and Your Family also, my Lady Friend. Respectfully Yours from Hungary, László
