First time I saw this beautiful moth created a great feast of colors. Shooting was also very successful. Thank you so much for sharing this visual beauty.
A very beautiful picture. Beautiful colors and image playback. A fantastic catch. I have never seen such species so far.
Welcome to TN, reviews beautiful and many points I wish you.
Have a beautiful evening,
Welcome to TN!
This is a fine capture of a male and female Luna moth, a species that was popular among those that bred silkmoths as a hobby when I was young.
The sharpness, use of flash and POV are great and so is the composition but maybe a bit more space at the sides would have been better, though that's a minor point as the shot shows these moths well and it is a fine contribution to TN.

Beautiful capture of the Luna Moths...As a kid I remember them from East Texas but have never seen one on Galveston Island...Now I know why, they lay their eggs on the leaves of Black Walnut/Hickory Nut trees which abound in East Texas...TFS
A warm welcome to TN!
Wow, what a fantastic shot!
Double luck on catching this pair.
Great POV and sharp details.
Is the color difference due to gender?
TFS. : )

A stunning photo. my best regards... ilker
I am still looking at the eye markings on wings. As if they are elephant's eyes.

Excellent capture, with this beautiful couple. Excellent colors and management of light. I agree with Peter (Argus) about the space on the left and right. Cheers,
