Wow...fantastic shot in V1, Carol. Look at those colours! What a beaut this fella is. Great detail you got on him too Smile

Vs 2 and 3 are sooo sweet. That's what I love about moths. They're comfortable perching on you, unlike butterflies Grin

Thumbs up for these Carol! Especially V3 - you must have such steady hands to get them to perch on your finger AND photograph them at the same time!. Smile

Such a beauty Carol. I have, somewhere in the house! the pupae of the giant tiger moth - the caterpillar escaped from the tent and now we will have to wait til spring for it to emerge. I hope it doesn't land on my face in the middle of the night!
