Lovely insect! Good image! IB
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!

Good grief,I might be getting as good as the Big O !!
Good shot.

Reminds me I haven't been out in the countryside enough this year.
The Burnet is a lovely moth.
