Default Zygaena transalpina

Zygaena transalpina on a chives (Allium schoenoprasum) blossom.

The picture was shot in approx. 1600 m altitude.

I hope you will enjoy the picture.

Cheers,

Stefan

The camera sure brings out the details usually missed by the human eye. Nice.

It is a moth. Very photogenic, as this excellent image shows - there are many pictures on Google images.

Excuse me, but I has to contradict to your comment.

It is a day active butterfly and not a night active moth.

But thanks a lot for you compliment for the IQ,

Cheers,

Stefan
