Two marvellous macros Carol, you did well with v1, these moths usually hide deep down in the grass and it is often difficult to get a clear shot of them without getting grass stalks in the way.

Two fine captures. Moths are seen as the poor relations of butterflies but are quite beautiful in their own right.

We got loads of them..I like their delicate pattern!

Both beautifully composed and captured but the bg of V1 somehow sends an especially attractive message along with that perfectly captured little Moth.
