Antennas are impressive, the sharpness is fine in all of the insect and with pleasant natural colours...
Well framed image, the blurry background works well to enhance the star of the show!
I like moths a lot, unfortunately i've noticed them recently! There are so colourful and very interesting species on that class. This one is a perfect example what i mentioned! It's really strange looking cause of the metallic colours on it. Strange but so beautiful also! pov is great with that exact vertical position of the moth! and i love the presantation you chose here! to me, this is a very interesting framing that worked perfectly! bg is incridible that like a watercolor! Everything in the frame are just perfect!
VERY WELL DONE!

Très belle image que nous présente ici. La composition simple et efficace met bien en valeur ton sujet. La netteté et l'exposition sont très bien réussies. La douce lumière et les couleurs pastelles charment le regard. Le flou de l'arrière plan est divin. Et le cadrage sobre est parfait.
Une très belle réussite qui mérite amplement un grand sourire vert foncé ;o).
Merci de partager tes plus belles images avec nous.

I really like yor choice of composition and framing on this shot. Great job with the isolation and seperation from the backround. Excellent exposure has rendered some beautiful colors. Detail is sharp, and the shallow DOF was perfect here.

I share your experience of "seeing" things after taking to photography, Valerie.
This moth is really very small (1 cm, your note says), but you have taken a brilliant macro of it.

great shot for such a small moth. you have managed it really well, it would have been wuite difficult to sneak up on him with a dSLR.

Gracias por compartir,
Waouh ! Il est superbe ce papillon nocture et bien mis en valeur ici. Il est bien isolé sur le fond très agréable.
Belles couleurs, bonne netteté et PdC.

Lovely shot! I like the simple composition and portrait framing a lot! Details are very good and colours very natural.
These fellows are very common in my neighbourhood. They like violet and pink flowers. Maybe you will have ocassion to see more of them soon.
VERY WELL DONE on the picture!

Lovely insect and colors. The BG is nicely OOF and makes the subject stand out. I hope you submit EXIF data in the future it is needed if one wants to make suggestions or give alternatives. Weill done.

wow, very beautiful shot, valerie! :-)
never seen a blue moth before.
excellent composition and nice positioning
in the lower left half.
superb sharpness and details - the comb-like antennae are amazing.
very well seen & captured, thor.

Excellent shot, great detail on the Moth and beautiful colours. I think that this works very well because only the Moth and the flower it sits on are in the immediate foreground, everything else is defocused by the shallow DOF. Nicely framed and interesting note, great work.

Hi Valerie, I love the composition on this shot., the way you have isolated the moth and the OOF background. The blue of the moth goes really well with the green tones of the grass. The details and lighting are also excellent, giving a very summery feel to it. Very well done and TFS.

your picture is outstanding!
I love the very subtle shades of green, and the very strict composition.
That is an excellent document of the species.
And it is a piece of art.

I have never seen moth in blue before and this one is so beautiful. I like the simplicity of the perch on that tiny plant and you have muted the background so well making it pleasant to see. Very sharp focus and well managed exposure.
TFS and have a great weekend.
