ah, this is exceptionally gorgeous ! the creature itself and the photo, you captured perfect contrast and the sharpness of the image ;-; the wings look like they're made of scaley feathers or fur or something glamorous. i love the texture. all your macros are so beautiful~
i don't understand how you capture things like these. whenever i get behind a camara, the subject runs away before i can click, or worse yet, i'm so busy waiting for the right moment that i miss it.
argh
hats off to you, sir.

:heart: :heart:

when i saw that moth, i thought of dalmatians first ;)

how to get close: move very slowly, dress black (or green/camo) and watch them through the camera, even from a distance you don't want to shoot them yet (less movement and less eyes watching them))
if they get away, wait for them to come back, they often do
some days ago i was chasing a grayling butterfly that was sitting on our pear tree, and would fly off, whenever i got within 1,5m, but it always came back and sat on the bark, and after 10 minutes, it let me get close, and even sat on me a few times

kann eigentlich nur ein nachtpfauenauge sein, die sind mit bis zu 15cm die größten in europa
der nächstkleinere wär der totenkopfschwärmer mit 12cm
