Hello Nikos,
A top quality image of this beautiful little moth. Wonderful clarity and perfectly exposed. I like the way the plant runs horizontally across the frame. Colors are nicely saturated and natural in appearance.
Well done!!

Hi Nikos,a bit distant but the details are fantastic,very sharp capture of this moth,very common in my country too,well done! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hi Nikos,

You have managed to capture the details of the wing patterns & the color despite the distance. A tighter crop could have helped.


Ciao Nikos, great macro ol lovely moth, fine details, wonderful natural colors and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hello Nikos,
Excellent BG. Well captured this Moth. Quite well details and perfect exposure. I would like to go for bit more tighter crop to get rid of BLANK SPACE and in such way you'll get more details too. I saw your WS picture but this is your main picture.
Thanks for sharing,
