Hello dear friends from TN.
As you’ve already seen, I like the little details about insects’ body a lot.
Last night, not that I wanted to, I worked until later and the Moths came through the windows again and, of course, I took pictures of them.
This little detail is of the left wing of the Moth and it looks like a Persian carpet .
I’m glad because it was very still, since it was during the day, this morning.
Hope you enjoy it…have a nice weekend.

Parece mesmo com um tapete persa com alta densidade de nós. Ótimo close-up com grande detalhamento e nitidez.
Até a próxima.

ciao Francisco!
macro davvero dettagliata,per mostrarci il dettaglio dell'ala di questa falena
come fosse il ricamo di un tappeto persiano.....ottimo lavoro

buona settimana sERGIO

Hy Francisco
I can say that excellent details in a nice composition.
All the best, Oana

great close up, greetings Ori

É o mais perto que já cheguei de um bicho desses. Os detalhes são realmente incríveis, e gostei da comparação com o tapete persa. É uma realidade fascinante que nos cerca a todo momento e passa despercebida. Parabéns!
