A very beautiful example of macro wildlife photography, which for me has all the right ingredients, to make such a great photograph.

Lovely irridescent blue color on this moth! well togged!
Nicely captured Ed as usual, never heard of this moth before Smile

He looks like he is wearing a silver cape. Would have been easy to blow out the colours but you have exposed perfectly. Difficult to tell the scale but that just adds to the mystery. Great capture.
