  1. Beautiful moth and shot! Posted 11 months ago
    1. Thanks! I had to do some very SLOW (literal) manipulation of the leaves as it was originally in a fairly dark spot. Luckily, it was inactive and I was able to just pluck the leaf from the vine and move it to better lighting! Then, it decided it wanted to crawl on my finger! Posted 11 months ago
      1. Awesome! I really like the lighting and the natural background :). I'm tired of uploading moths on my dirty siding! Leaves are so much prettier! Posted 11 months ago
        1. That is exactly how I feel! I was determined to make this work, so I was very gentle! Posted 11 months ago
  2. Stunning find, Lisa, and very well captured! Posted 11 months ago
