many thanks for your kind comments on the dark sunflower. Please forgive my feeble input at the moment .. it is not easy .. but I appreciate your kind feedback very much and will try to find more time for you all.

here is a little purple moth or mint moth ( to give you a translation of the French or Dutch name) Pyrausta purpurali. It resembles a lot the more widespread Pyrausta aurata.
Taken under a scabious at the mozzie lake. the whole moth is only about 15-18mm

Interesting to see the moth perfectly lined up on the stem -- almost looks like a PS manipulation.
Very nice border treatment -- looks like it's made up of bits of the moth.

Interesting use of both diagonals to good effect, Annette, and a fine shot of the moth, showing up so well against uniform dark green b/g.

Great markings, but it is the color that captures my attention-- nothing red like this in any moths I have seen--- wonderful image!

A stunning composition Annette, which works extremely well on the diagonal. As for this rather beautifully colourful 'Purple Moth', well he or she is certainly a sight for sore eyes, simply quite stunning.

A cracking close up of this minute moth, you've captured its colours and wing markings in such intricate detail which is no mean feat given its miniscule size
