Silkmoth are real beautiful animals. I can never stop watching and studying them when I see one. This is a real nice shot

Beautiful muted colors and details. I like the red legs! Do you use a hood with this lens, jypsee?

Moth day, indeed! My moth was Cinderella sweeping up the ashes; yours is Cinderella after the Fairy Godmother gave her a party frock! What a beautiful creature. Wonderful capture.

WOW!! I think a macro lens is in order. This is one of the best butterfly shots I've seen. Of course, it's a pretty big butterfly to begin with!
