Hi Jan,

As I can see I am not the only one who posts love shots today,very nice composed macro,well seen and captured,picture is sharp and detailed,


Very well composed shot with a nice point of view, depth of focus and sharpness. I like the tri-coloured BG.
Thanks for sharing it, Jan.

Brilliant capture Jan, the diagonal of the hanger makes for an excellent composition. Good sharpness revealing nice details. Well done.

Hello Jan.
Great composition with superb colors and details.
Excellent POV and BG.
Love the frame.

Hi Jan,
a capture of outstanding precision and beauty!
Have not seen a single one of these remarkable day active moths yet, let alone a couple of them mating. Definitely a great shot!
With thanks, and best regards,
