caught a shot of this chap which had made its home on a off cutting of a plant on our kitchen window.
I have no idea what type of moth he is but thought he looked good backlit by the sun through the window.

Hello Clint,

Very nice way of treating this subject. This way of using the light is not usual and looks great in your photo. I like the very nice colors you have rendered and the way butterfly's colors matches with the background. Excelent image with great details of wings pattern.

Thank you for sharing,

Hi, Clint,

Hello Clint,
beautiful light and presentation of Idaea aversata (family: Geometridae).
The insect stands out so clear that it seems to hover.
Best wishes, Peter

Bonjour Clint
Magnifique présentation, excellente gestion de l'éclairage et de l'exposition.
Amicalement Robi

I just love this shot, I love the colours especially, and the way it makes the moths wings look translucent. It is perfectly sharp as well. Lovely pov, I really like it, its a beautiful shot.

ciekawe ujęcie - od dołu , sprawiło, że motyl nie tylko stał się półprzezroczysty, ale też tło jest jednolite i słoneczne. Bardzo ciekawe podejście do pokazania owada, best quality, bravo
