Name of the photo"Climbing for feel the heat on its wings last time."

I couldn't find information about this moth but its English name is Crimson-speckled Moth and I heard this is a worldwide species.I don't know is this rare or widespread? I took this in South-east of Turkey where the last colony of Northern Bald Ibises(Geronticus eremita) are living in Turkey.For anyone who was there before:I took in Wadi near the Bald Ibis nesting station.Also I had a Desert Lark(Ammomanes deserti) which was new species for me.

Also known as the Crimson Speckled Footman, this species originated in the African/Meiterranean region and has now spread worldwide. It can be very common, and in places is a significant pest on species like tomatoes. A nice photograph, which would benefit from a little sharpening and maybe a levels tweak - but easily done.

Hello Emin,
It's a beautiful moth in a sunset light. Nice composition as well. I would just sharpen the image a bit.
Best greetings,

Hi Emin,
I have seen this moth before and it's a great capture you got, especially considering the small size.
Composition is excellent taking both blurred background and some skies into the frame.
Light is just perfect.
