|I was hoping to take a photo of my new foxglove plant with yellow flowers when I noticed this moth. The yellow on the wings closely matched the yellow flowers.|
Thanks for taking a look.

A super image of not only the butterfly, but also the Foxglove. The butterfly I'm pretty sure is a Common Checkered Skipper (Pyrgus communis). Check out this site
The detail is excellent and the colors true and natural. Your choice of an f/5.0 aperture gave you very good DOF and the exposure is right on the money. Well done.
a nice macro shot of beautiful moth on foxglove from dorsal POV. sharp focus, POV/DOF and horizontal composition very nice. thanks for sharing. best wishes
nice shot from the flower and the Moth.
