Spotted Around

By danielle1987
Saw a lot of these while walking and found them bright and interesting so I whipped out the macro and got this Smile very difficult as the wind kept blowing strong so it was a case of waiting for it to stop quick focus and snap before it moved again.

This is excellent. It has clarity, good colour and nice dof, yet even the antenna are in focus and the sheen on the wings is beautiful.

thank you very much pamela Smile I liked the sheen on the wings, this was actually the second trip the first one was minus a tripod and to be honest all the pictures were crap. I wasnt sure if the DOF was enough on these ones either but it seems to have been.

A wonderful composition and the details on the moth are brilliant.
I've seen none on the farm this year, but as we have to pull up and burn all Ragwort (it's food plant), that's no wonder really!!
