This guy is so moving moth, generally all time its wings on action. Cause of that i took this picture, setting the focusing point about 6 cm manually then i pushed the trigger. i don't know about the id, only i know that this one is nocturnal and prefer lantana's flower for feeding in my garden. Hummingbird hawkmoth prefer this plant too and i saw them together sometimes. Any help for identification makes me happy.

i did some ps works on this photo, i want to learn your idea about this kind of ps works. So i will upload the same picture without ps works as a workshot.

Thanks for visiting...

Hi Ersin,
Great macro again with good details and lightning and interesting WS... To be really honest with you, I like pretty much the "before" WS version which is very natural; but I think that isolating the insect like you do has a style on its own :) Those are two differents ways to work with subject. Your published version gave more impact to the moth itself. TFS and take care!

Hi Ersin!
You're making wonders with your compact cam! Superb night shot! So clear and sharp, perfectly exposed and taken in right moment. Patterns on moth's wings look really good.

A really superb picture of the "Silver Y". Beautiful detail! They normally flutter about and are hard to photograph.
Thanks, Ulla

Hi Ersin !
I think this is a Silver Y Moth (Autographa gamma), but I'm not really sure about it. It is very common in French meadows, and I would say they fly during the night as well as during the day. Anyway, it's an excellent picture, with razor sharp details, wonderful composition and fantastic black BG. Very well done !

Hello again
Another great night shot. Very good colours and composition.
Nice black background
