Unusual top down look gives for drama and increases the effect of the colour combination

A rather cracking close up photograph Ed, full of beautiful colour, detail, and warming light, which really emphasises this gorgeous 'Six Spotted Burnet' so very well. A real gem

The colours are beautiful and details in the moth, 1st class. Still waiting for my first re-time view of one of these beauties!
