This flower had to be very tasty ;-)
Very interesting photo. The moths look like snips of some glittered fabric. The composition is nice. Some of the moths are a bit out of focus but I understand that it wasn't easy to "catch" them all.
I like the colours though maybe lily and green doesn't match very well.
Well done and thanks for posting.

Very good shot, it would have been maybe better to use a lower speed to get more details.

It's a real pleasure to have you back...
A great macro with wonderful colours, efficient DOF and sharp details.

Unusual shot Jaap and very eye catching. The colour and texture on the moths is very nice, accurate DOF. Good post.

Het konde er vermoedelijk niet meer opzitten Jaap, een school voorbeeld hoe men moet fotogrferen met meerdere vlinders terzelfdertijd, de een al ietjes meer met zijn vleugels open dan de andere, Jaap hier voelt u zich terug thuis, hopelijk blijft iedereen verstandig.

Yes, a orgy of beautiful subjects is a beautiful flower. I like ti very much Jaap. You did very well F2.3 gave you a good DOF, but maybe a bit higher value would be better.
I enjoyed this one!

It almost looks like they are searching for someone's contact lens :)
This is a beautiful capture and I like the colors here a lot. The sharpness and DOF is excellent.
Very well done and thanks for posting

I think this flower has done really well to attract so many customers, it will surely be pollinated in the process.
An interesting image with so many drinkers at the tavern. Well domposed and enough detail to make it a very worthy contribution to TN.

This is a most stunning composition, of all these insects with their irridescent wings crowding around the flower, The colors are gorgeous. Very well-done, Jaap.

Wow, so many pretty insects with metallic-look.
Sharpness is perfect, I can see so many details. One of them has different antennae, looking like a comb - don't laugh, I have too much phantasie!
Thanks for showing, bye

Hello Jaap, the moths in your excellent photo look like emerald jewels with wings. Beautiful colors and composition. TFS!
I've to correct your identification. it's NOT Adelidae specie. The picture present moths from family Zygaenidae called Forester.
It's rather common but I've never seen so many moths on one flower ;-)
