75 image stack of a Clouded Drab Orthosia incerta Moth, captured this morning and processed this afternoon using Zerene Stacker & PS.
Very common species of moth with a wingspan of 35-40mm, found on the wing from March thru to the end of May, feeds on various trees including oak, elm, birch, etc.
Apologies to everyone for not commenting too much lately, I've been quite unwell of late, in fact this was the first time I've had the cameras out for several weeks. I won't bore you with all the details other than to say I'm hopefully on the mend now Smile

This moth is far from drab Ade, you've kicked off the mothing season in style with this terrific detailed upload. You may have missed that dust bunny but we've all missed the epz Bunny, whatever has happened to her and the crazy garden?!

Opened this up directly from email notification of upload so I never saw the thumbnail.
That is a seriously scary image to be confronted with first thing in the morning. What superb detail in the antennae and body hair.
Glad to hear you on the up again.

I am such a wimp with spiders, but moths fascinate me - this one is a beauty Ade. So busy looking at the detail did not even notice the dust bunny! Glad to see you posting again.
