metallic blue - jasmine moth
This thing is beautiful. Of course I wouldn't know what it could be, but the way it looks reminds me of some Christmas tree ornaments I remember vaguely to admire in my childhood. Congratulations,
No ideea about the ID, but the colours, sharpness and overall feeling about this photo is great.

The metallic blue on this moth is indeed stunning, Ersin.
It seems that the LED headlight works out very well for these night shots. The POV is perfect and the details are exquisite.
TFS. : )

super macro of this Microlepidoptera. You achieved a beautiful presentation of the reflections on the wings. Excellent sharpness and well composed.
Best wishes, Peter

excellent details and a delightful richness of colours in this perfectly taken close-up of a very beautiful and unusual moth! Looks wonderful. Thank you!
A very beautiful metallic moth you have here!
Excellent sharpness, great colors and POV. Perhaps a bit too stong on the flash...i don't know if can turn it down from your camera, but it would be worth a try...just as an option and then you could compare what turned out with the normal one. Anyway, a very good shot!
BTW, i just came back from a trip where i had the chance to find some very nice and interesting snakes. I really thought about you and i'm sure you would have enjoyed being there with us :) But i haven't fergot my promise that if i'll come to Turkey, we'll definately go on a snake search :))
Bravo for the soho, my friend, and TFS

What a beautiful ghost you have well captured. It is very cute and colous are great. I think Horia made a wonderful workshop too, improves a lot. Geat details, my friend.
