Hello Luciano,
Beautiful photo of this special moth. Nice to see a "first-time-posting'. Beautiful colors in great sharpness and details.

Hello Luciano,
Nice image with a lovely specie. Excellent colors and details. Difficult POV.
Have a nice weekend....

Bonjour Luciano,

La végétation cadre bien l'insecte. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon la Madope du Saule. La lumièere fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.
