[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I`d like to dedicate this moth for my friend Tabajara Kaiser "taba" because, as far as I know, he likes this kind of diferent views like me. I saw fell days ago a similar pic in his colection, so I decided to give him this one as a gift.
Sometimes I work until later and these moths landing on my window. I know there are lots of dust in the glass, but I`m glad because it doesn`t have flash reflexions on the glass surface.
So, I hope you enjoy this image, and of coures, Taba too. Thanks.

Hola Francisco,
nos presentas un original trabajo realizado en unas condiciones difíciles ténicamente hablando y que resolviste hilgadamente. Tenemos un "xip" en el que programamos como queremops ver la imagen y todo lo que difiere de ello a veces no lo consideramos normal. Valoro especialmente este trabajo por ello y además por el buen resultado obtenido.
Un saludo y buena semana: Josep Ignasi.

Hi Francisco.
I welcome your idea to create such shot. It is really unusual and very attractive POV. We can see insects from such point rarely. Flash use is perfect and details as well as colouration of the moth are reflected excellently. TFS and also thanks for warm congratulations.
