I know they are rather common in the UK and in regions of Europe; does anyone know if they can also be encountered in the USA?

Common! Common!?! I haven't seen one in years!!! Sad Please can you send one to me this year! Smile

They are gorgeous moths, but so difficult to capture (they move so quickly). You've done brilliantly - I'd be very proud to own this image!

I have never seen one in the UK! This has an exotic feel, particularly with the deep red and gold tones - gorgeous image, and very well taken.
