      1. I love ventral shots - they have so much info and value. It's cool that this moth has its antennae tucked underneath. I also like the night sky background effect - whether it's dust or whatever, it looks like stars :-D. Posted 3 months ago
        1. Yeah ... this one even has some stars on its belly! ;o) Posted 3 months ago
          1. Hehe, yep. It must be star dust... Posted 3 months ago, modified 3 months ago
