I spotted one of those not so long ago ( Chris took me doing this, see my PF Smile) but my result didn't even come close to this.

They are tricky Annette - very quick movements when nectaring. I see you were really getting down to it.Smile

Captured and detailed to perfection, Brian. Love the wing patterning, textures and rich warm tones. Those wings remind me of fine tapestry work! Stunning.

Perfectly photographed & presented, Brian. Also has a great 3D effect if you look at it long enough.

It was only when I saw one of these on EPZ that I started looking for them, and was surprised how tiny they are, but noticeable by their colour. Amazing detail, Brian, on one so very small.

Mint moths are tiny, but it's amazing how coarse their wings look when up close - brilliantly caught, the details are fantastic!

Fantastic detail, colours and textures in this exceedingly fine close up shot of this beautiful little moth. If you are not careful the Big O will be sending you a threatening pm for encroaching into his territory!Wink As you very well know he does not like competition and having his nose pushed out of joint! lol Grin
