Can you guess what this is?In order to show only this pattern,I have masked the other areas but not fully so you can get some clue. I will post the full pic a little later.

Both of you identified it right - yes it is a moth. Here are some pics of it I took today:

I like that perching on a stick like a bird one best myself. Such a nice pose and it feels like the moth is involved in the process.

Number 3 for me too...although all 3 are nice clear shots. Looks like some sort of hawk moth by the wing shape....

"Ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggeddy beasties and things that go bump in the night"...
I like #3 best ... a cute quizzical little face as though he is smiling for the camera. Nice set-up and composition. A great capture.
Did you use a macro lens?
