      1. Nice! The lighting definitely adds to the effect. Did you spot this moth during one of your nighttime, jungle moth-ing parties? Posted one year ago
        1. No, it's because I used f/16 to cover the depth of field needed here. Unfortunately that turns backgrounds quite dark. Posted one year ago
          1. I think the effect really works for this shot. Posted one year ago
  2. Beautiful species! Posted one year ago
  3. How cool! Great shots and observation, Ferdy!
