Hi All,
I found this guy/gal resting on the slat of a vertical window blind, I believe it's a "Swallow Tailed Moth", first time I recall seeing one. Shot with a Pentax K100D + Cosina 100/3.5 Macro lens, about half life size. ... Jack

Hi Clint, and thank you. I did manage to move it outdoors where it belongs, hopefully it will survive better out there. ... Jack.
