Hi Lou,
Prachtig scherp gedetailleerde macro van deze mot. De kleuren zijn heel apart en contrasteren erg mooi tegen de achtergrond. Prima centrale compositie.

Hello Laurens,
Wow!What a nice softness over the light!
Beautiful clarity and a lovely closeup.
best regards,

Well composed macro showing excellent lighting and detail. I like the sharpness, POV and clarity of the subject against a contrasting BG.

Hi Lou,
The Latin name you used is insufficient, correctly it's Ourapteryx sambucaria. How interesting is that I've never before saw this species, but a few hours ago I found a dead specimen on a path near Cork. In my home country, Hungary it's a rare species, although not protected by the law. Your photo is very nice, I like composition, colors, light management and contrast also. Beautiful visual impact. Bravo.
Best regards, László

Hello Lou,
Wow!! what a beautiful lemon colored moth you have presented to us. I love the diagonal markings across each wing and it's tiny tails. This is definitely a new moth for me and a gorgeous one at that!!
