Burnet Moth

By Irishkate  
Another nature shot from the archives.
We didn't seem to get out for walks this summer(wonder why)!
I didn't know what a Burnet moth looked before capturing this one,
so photography has been very educational for me in many ways.
Thank you for votes for Common Blue yesterday.

Good use of wide aperture, Kate, the moth and it's curving perch nicely separated from the b/g, concentrating attention on the subject.

Composition and DOF are excellent Kate, I do agree with your comment about learning about Nature from this site, I have now a little knowledge about Birds and Flowers from EPZ.

Nice capture of a beautiful moth Kate
PS I managed a "3rd" with "Dusk on the Tyne" and a Highly Commended with "Herd Groyne Lightouse II" at last weeks comp - that 1st is still very illusive! Wink
