  1. What a beautiful little moth! Posted one month ago
    1. Yes, they're purdy! :o)
      Truth told, yesterday (when I shot this) I realized that me flashing almost all situations turns out to be 'cheating' a little on this species, as I also tried a few shots with no or less flash and those came out quite differently ... I'll see if I can cook up a side by side ...
      P.S. thereyago
