Very nice shots! I see these around my house fairly often, but I've never gotten shots anywhere as nice as yours--they are fast and skittish.

That's it, yours is prettier though. How did you manage to pretty much freeze the wing movement?

I used IOS 400, 1/750 sec, f/10 (strange f/stop the camera decided on), but it was a sunny day, which gave me more speed to freeze the wings, but not completely so there is slight movement there.

That said, this one was taken just seconds after the first one and with the same settings and the wings are not stopped, so it may be just luck as to when you trip the shutter unless you use much faster shutter speeds.

Somewhere in between those two would be perfect wing movement I reckon, now go out, find that moth again and get it right! roflmao! Just kidding of course, both those are lovely I think but I'm sure you know what I mean by an inbetween amount of movement would be just about perfect.

If only these bugs would co operate with us!

You mean more like this? I just shot as many photos as I could while the moth was there and then picked through them when I got home. I bet if you get the chance on a sunny day you will get the same effect.



Or like this for a more formal presentation.

Alison,

I didn't mean to hijack your post, just got carried away with the movement of the wings.

LOL, no problem at all, it;s nice to see other shots of the same sort of things.

What I mean about the wing movement is to keep it there but with more defined outline in between the blurs, hard to explain but I know what I mean! lol!
