Mothra

Moth.

There I was processing a selfie to use on my 365. Spent a bit of time in different costumes in different poses with different lights, even changing lenses, coming up with something cool that I was gonna share with my 365 friends. I had even completed the processing, looked pretty funky, nice selfie with a bit of 'tude.

So there I was relaxing with a cold Lager thinking "I'll post the selfie later" and this Moth drops by...

Moth.
Amazing macro shot......ugly bugger though.

@rainbowsnic42 - I don't know why Silence of the Lambs came into my head when I read your comment Nic... creep out time!!!

Would still like to see that selfie, Jason... but this isn't too shabby either. By your profile pic, you seem to be almost as hairy :) Fav for me.
August 21st, 2011  
Wow Jason.. What lens were you using? This is fanfriggingtastc :) Fave here as well.
August 21st, 2011  
nice shot
August 21st, 2011

August 21st, 2011  
on your marks.....get set.......
August 21st, 2011  
Beautiful shot - fav - I might have to try your technique of a cold beer - it certainly works for you
August 21st, 2011  
Great macro! Love his fuzziness, though sad we missed the selfie...
August 21st, 2011  
@deens - Aye Nadine, pretty hirsute I am. *JD says while stroking beard in the manner of the absent Tull*

@michelleyoung - Thank you Michelle, it be my favourite macro combo of 35mm attached to a 2x converter. The cool thing was as this moth moved closer to the edge of the table, I was able to get down and shoot from the very edge so that the camera body was below the horizontal. Makes for a great angle, almost looking up at the Moth???

@steeler - Cheers Man of Steele.

@robynelizabeth - Sorry, selfie deleted. It was fun processing but not required now.

@houdiniem - GO GO GO!

@marper - never hurt... make sure it is cold though.

@alia_801 - How can one be sad when faced with fuzzy moth?
August 21st, 2011  
This is an awesome moth!!!! ...You'll make a new selfie some other day... right? ;-)
August 21st, 2011  
Great looking moth, we don't have those!
August 21st, 2011  
Amazing capture, that's as macro as it gets! Congrats. Selfie tomorrow?
August 21st, 2011  
I thought you were trying to tell us this was your selfie ;-) Tomorrow for the selfie then?
August 21st, 2011  
great capture
August 21st, 2011  
@bella_ss hehe! That's what I thought too ;)
Fabulous macro JD! Will keep an eye out for your selfie!
August 21st, 2011  
your explanations always make me laugh! this shot is SO awesome, i like his pose :)
August 21st, 2011  
Great capture, but where's the selfie??
August 21st, 2011  
Ira
Great one!
August 21st, 2011  
Nice moth....we want to see the selfie!
August 21st, 2011  
Nice closeup, love the shots of bugs and moths. Family says I'm obsessed with bugs. Good job. I know how fast they move.
August 21st, 2011  
Thanks so much for the info Jason
August 21st, 2011  
Thats one bad ass looking moth. What detail.
August 21st, 2011  
What a great shot, and I agree, after all that yarn about the selfie, I really, really think you want to, no you need to show the selfie.
August 21st, 2011  
he's quite a handsome chap!!
August 22nd, 2011  
Wow, love the detail :)
August 22nd, 2011  
Looks like he is about to bite of someones head! He is kind of handsome in his own way. I'm waiting for the selfie!
August 22nd, 2011  
I can see why you might be a little hesitant...I mean, look at this guy. He looks burly and muscular, and just full of spunk and looking for trouble! I have to Fav it because it's such a bad-arse! ;)

Oh, and you're such a tease...
August 22nd, 2011  
so this moth was the buzzkill ~ nice shot, but I'll bet you look better ;-)
August 22nd, 2011  
This is a super macro! Great detail and texture. This almost looks like a pastel "painting". A fav. (I thought you were going to say that the moth was a selfie of you!)
August 22nd, 2011  
Awesome details, Jason! I love looking at your macros! :0)
August 22nd, 2011  
A moth with attitude.

Thank you ladies. I appreciate the requests for a selfie... but unfortunately as long as moths drop by like this one, then the selfie may have to wait a little longer. Hopefully I'll always be around, the moths they come and go...

August 22nd, 2011  
Niiiiice! Love the colours and detail here! Don't worry, I'm less bothered about seeing the selfie ;)
August 22nd, 2011  
wow!! this is fantastic!!
August 22nd, 2011  
Very cool macro!
August 22nd, 2011  
he looks like he is mad at someone or something, lol, his back looks hunched, kind of like a cat. Excellent close up!
August 22nd, 2011  
I saw him in one of the BIG photos on the PP. The detail was incredible....IS incredible! I love this guy! What a good job you do with this! Too bad no selfie...we'll have to keep waiting.
August 23rd, 2011  
WOW amazing macro!
August 23rd, 2011  
@espyetta - YAY! There was a while when I thought only a frog could get on the PP, but how about that! A moth is popular! :D

@5unflow3r - Thank you Trina.

@kdimagery - if the truth be known Kd, this Moth was about to die. He/she wasn't well and was just surviving. I placed him/her on a branch of a Mango Tree and maybe the rest was good for her/him?

@raebell @kammy - Oh thank you Rachel and Kammy!

@roobubba - sorry Isaac the selfie made it today...
August 23rd, 2011  
Brilliant shot
August 23rd, 2011  
@clarefigo - why thank you Clare :)
August 23rd, 2011  
amazing shot Janson, he looks like he's got his mean face on!!!! well done!!!
August 25th, 2011  
@glb484 - unfortunately, it was his dying face... he wasn't real well :(
August 26th, 2011  
A very good shot.
August 27th, 2011  
@annamaker - Thank you Anna Mae :)
August 27th, 2011  
He looks like you could almost pat him! I don't know why, maybe it's the hair..
October 13th, 2011  
@amz87 - he was big enough too!
