This guy was near a little pond. Very inactive, so i had lots of photos that day.

i searched about that and it is a ruby tiger...

i will upload an top view shot as a ws.

Ruby Tiger - Phragmatobia fuliginosa

Wingspan 30-35 mm.

Fairly widespread, this species is common in places. Showing a gradual variation in colour, with the brightest individuals in the south, and much duller specimens in Scotland, attributable to the subspecies borealis.

It is double-brooded in the south, flying in April to June, and again in August and September. In the north there is just one generation, in June.

The larva are polyphagous, feeding on a number of herbaceous plants.

Hallo Ersin,
beautiful side view of fuliginosa so that the headdress is nicely seen. Excellent sharpness on head, thorax, legs and most parts of the wings.
Best wishes, Peter

Wow... muy buena macro Ersin, con excelente POV, maravilloso color y contraste del insecto con el fondo.
Ajustado DOF, a pesar del F2.8 el insecto se encuentra totalmente en foco despegando aun ms la silueta de la polilla.
Perfecto encuadre y uso del flash.
Me encanta... realmente.
Saludos... Ricardo

Wow... very good macro Ersin, with excellent POV, wonderful color and contrasts of the insect with the bottom.
Tight DOF, in spite of the F2.8 the insect is totally in focus stick out even the silhouette of moth.
Perfect framing and use of the flash.
It really enchants to me.
Regards... Ricardo

Hello my friend!

Very nice macro work of this interesting moth!
I like the POV and DOF, the lovely natural colors and tones of both it and the nice BG. The detaisl and textures are also great and the flash usage is good.
I also like the WS...the upper view is excellent, too.

Bravo, TFS and have a great weekend!

Hi Ersin,
Wow, you caught a real beauty here :) Sharpness is just great and I really like those amazing details. We can see every single little orange hair. It look almost like an animal, not an insect :) I like this POV and composition. This is a nice specie that I didn't know about, thanks!

Very nice picture of this beauty. It's very attarctive species from Arctiidae family. I've seen this mothe yesterday. I'll try to post this picture next week ;-)


What a nice colour this one has, I like it very much, it is very unique. Nice POV and BG too.
I think you improved in your WS, and with the top view and the note you leave a great document on this one.
BTW: I think we have the correct id on our "fungi lover fly" in my last post, thanks to Dmitry.

Hello Ersin,
beautiful soft colours in this image.
Much more than a good documentation of a pretty species of tiger moths, this is a picture that looks very inviting and cozy. Hope you are happy and well.
Have a very good day!
With thanks, and best regards,

Hola Ersin,
Nice moth, its colours are beautiful. The macro is good but maybe little focal depth, but still a good pic.
