Great shot. Amazing looking moth, look at those colors.

I like this perspective from further back to include more of the surroundings.

Perfect composition Tom!
There had to be a butterfly to finish the arc builded by the flowers.
Professionals always have a butterfly in their bags for this purpose :-)

Great shot. The color and composition are nice. I might be mistaken but this is not a moth but a butterfly. A Painted Lady Butterlfy I believe.

I do believe widowmaker speaks correctly.
This insect has thin antenna.
Moths have wide feathered brushes for their antenna.

I stand corrected. :-)I thought perhaps that this might be a moth because of itsextremely fuzzy/dusty apperance on its back between the wings. (not visible in this shot.)

My own personal gripe with this shot is the oversaturated yellows. I find them distracting from the moth... er, butterfly. I did one pass of desaturization, but every time I look at it, I think I should have done more.

Live and learn.

I don't know what your problem is with the yellow?????? It's my favorite colour this year and in your shot it's very vivid, refreshing, cooling...... Perhaps if you look at it as a shot of the yellow flowers with a butterfly rather than a shot of a butterfly with yellow flowers this will change your opinion a bit.

I think it's a fantastic picture. Oh, and I'm glad it's a butterflly and not a moth.....moths are stupid :blah:

I like it, Tom. The clarity is right on.
