Bonjour Anne,
There is no missing this specimen when you pass it as its coloring is bright and unusual. A great find.
Hope all is well with you...

Liebe Anne,
das wärmeliebende Beilfleckwidderchen zappelt hier sehr lebendig zwischen flirrenden Grashalmen der Sonne entgegen. Wo ein bequemes Autofokus wohl versagt hätte, konntest Du wohl wie gewohnt von Hand den Fokus sehr gut auf das in der grellen Sonne schimmernde und bewegte Widderchen setzen und in perfekter Schärfe mit feinen Details ins Bild setzen.
Mit Dank und herzlichen Grüssen,

Beautiful moth Anne! Great photo too! Very good composition, fantastic colours and impressive sharpness!
