Great shot. The wings almost look like feathers. Very striking and unusual.

Both captures are nice, this one for the shadow effect and nice feathery pattern, the other for the beautiful details it shows.
This one has some white specks of noise in the dark bits and a few dark specks in the sky, you might consider cloning those out.

Vewry nice silhoette with the light shining through the wings. Nice angle and good work!
Very nice capture Peter. From the thumbnail I first thought that you captured it flying. There is some noise which could be removed very easily in PS (or similar program) so I took the liberty to clean it for you - hope it's OK.

Great shot, Peter. You timing was just right to get the wings spread like that. The wings remind me of frost on the window in winter.

This is the Twenty-plume Moth (Alucita hexadactyla), the only species of the many-plumed moths in the UK and in Northern America. The larvae live mainly in honeysuckle blossom.
