Hi Luc - coming back here after a long time its good to see another of your superb images. Lovely broad range of colors in the wings, and the antennae and other part very sharp.

Hi Luciano,
this geometrid moth is not big yet you were able to do a good macro with a Cybershot. Good ! The animal shows a strange colour combination of rosy with orange, I have never seen a thing like that. Thanks for sharing.
Greetings, Dietrich

Perfectly exposed beautiful colours and nice shot.

Bonjour Luciano,

La végétation cadre bien le papillon. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon l'Ensanglantée des Renouées. La lumière fait ressortir la beauté des couleurs. Bonne journée.

Hello Luciano,
Beautiful coloured Moth and quite well managed background. Details are good although focus doesn't look equally distributed here. Well presentation although not such attractive as well perfect like your previous butterfly 🦋 picture.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and keep shooting ☺,

Ciao Luciano, un po' malmessa ma graziosa lo stesso, ogni tanto il puntocino lo becch anche tu dal nostro amico, piccoletta e malmessa com'è difficile far meglio, bravissimo, ciao Silvio
