Another abstract image of a Butterfly wing, this time a Silk moth ( AFRICAN MOON SILK MOTH (A.MIMOSAE) and a big one too Smile The wing span was approx 6" with a tail of approx 9" I decided to go in as close as I could, hope it appeals

Thank you all so much for all your C&C's very much appreciated, a huge thank you to Lillian for her UA on my image yesterday

Thanks for taking the time to look

Hugh
