Hello Pawel,
Remarkable photo. This interesting species of moth has wonderful white colors. The contrast against the background is superb. Very nice composition taken from a excellent POV with lovely light. Very difficult to shoot because he is flying very low.
Thanks for sharing this beauty!

Hi Pawel.
You managed to picture a true beauty. Delicates of colours tones and shapes of the moth impress the imagination. Blurred surroundings adds the impression. TFS and best regards. Nice job.

hallo pawel
very nice composition and good details
lovely colours
thanks greeting lou

Hi Pawel,
a nice shot of this moth, nor often you will find it pose with open wings, mostly it's sitting well hidden deep in the grass.
Nice composition, decent sharpness and fine DOF, the whole insect is focus and stand out nicely from the blurry BG. I like the soft colours too.


Czesc Pawel,
podoba mi sie ten motyl i generalnie fotka. Super glebia i ostrosc dokladnie na motylu. Swietny balans bieli.
