Six Spot Burnet

By geoffrey baker
A 6 Spot Burnet moth on Thistle in the field outside my house.

I saw the opportunity to get a shot of this moth and also make it look a bit different to just a straight macro shot.

The Thistles were all in the same focal plane, well, very close anyway so I went for this arrangement.

What a beautiful image Geoff, different from the norm as you've included the rest of the plant along with the moth, wishing you and your family all the best for 2009
