Brimstone Moth

By justin c
This attractive Brimstone Moth (Opisthograptis luteolata) was attracted to my lighted window one Summer's evening,I very carefully coaxed the moth onto this yellow flower which I chose to complement the moths' colours,I then chose to use a piece of blue card as a backdrop,as I thought it made a nice contrast to the vibrant yellow of the moth and flower.
The shot was initially shot using a Canon EOS 5 and Tamron 90mm Macro lens on a Benbo Mk 1 tripod and using Fuji Velvia 50 at iso 50.
I don't own a modern film scanner so I decided to digitize the image by placing it on a light box and photographing it using my Canon 10D with Tamron 90mm Macro lens.
