Wonderful shots Carol, in v1 the shape of the moth is like one of those stylised angels. The detail and pose in v3 is almost intimidating. Excellent stuff.

With the shape of the wings it is more like a butterfly than a moth. Good close-up work.

And if Ade can't identify it he'll have to name it after you.

Think I've cracked it, well you know I don't like being beaten Grin I'm 95% sure it's a variation of one of the many Carpet Moths/Geometers, probably specific to your area of the world. I found several similar species but nothing quite the same, however this might be down to the colour balance of the image and the fact it was probably taken with flash......Sorry I can't be more specific......I bleed'in hate it when you throw me a curve ball Tongue

I thought you'd outfoxed the Big O at first but I should have known that the old buzzard would find out what it was in the end!Smile A terrific set of close ups Carol, not surprised to see you carpet so many votes already. I'd be very careful if I were you, it looks like the Big O has converted you to the dark side, you will know that there is no turning back if you wake up tomorrow morning craving cider and speaking with a West Country accent!Tongue

A very good set, Carol, 1 & 3 are real beauties though. v1 is an excellent composition especially with the shadow, and v3 is very imposing, almost intimidating.
