[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I know the quality of this image is not so good, particularly for the out of focus, but I chose to share it because I liked the pose of the moth a Crocota tinctaria, thanks to Merlin for the ID

Hi, Georgio
This is a moth, not a butterfly, and is the female of the noctuid species Crocota tinctaria. As you say, the image is not very sharp but it is good enough for a positive identification.
Regards, Nigel.

Ciao Giorgio,oggi la foto non e' un gran che,comunque capisco le difficolta' che queste specie portano...complimenti perche' non e' molto rara,ma la qualita' ricorda il vecchio Silvio del 2005..ehehe...buona Domenica,Luciano

I absolutely LOVE this photo..i don't know why, but i am so intrigued! Had to play in workshop..so totally ART for me. TFS!! :0)

Ciao Giorgio. Un po' sfocata ma queste falenette sono tremende perchč si imboscano in mezzo all'erba nelle posizioni pił strane. Non se ne vedono tante su TN per cui complimenti per la cattura.
