Thanks a lot to "Batu" for identifying this pretty moth. I want to dedicate this post to dear "batu"..

Species: Zygaena loti

Hello to all,

A Zygaena moth which I couldn't identify. If anyone could identify this please let me know.

I like this very much because it is very sharp and there's a similar flower at the BG.

Press F11 to see much better.

Thanks for all critiques.

Hallo Emin,

Hi Emin,

You just got the identification.
I'm here just to congratulate you for your work on this photo. Lovely colours, sharpness and composition.

Regards, Petru

I'm not quite sure but it could be really Zygaena loti. All Zygaenidae are very various so sometimes it's not easy to identify. Anyway: great capture ;-D


Hi Emin,
very pretty and unusual Zygaena, well captured.
I like that straight and simple composition!
Thank you, and best regards,
