This little Heliotrope moth was clinging onto the side of my car this morning. Love his orange spots.....The focus could have been better but I suck at hand holding my macro and the hubby was grumbling at me to get in the car because he was late for work.......whatcha gonna do!?
LOL! the colours are fantastic, great find, andrea!

Oh, yay! I'm so glad I'm not the only one with a grumbling husband when it comes to photo ops. Again, such a great photo! He kinda looks like a Star Wars character in a very lovely cloak.

This is *gorgeous*! I thought at first it was a scarf draped over a hook on the wall! I've never seen such a lovely moth (wonder what the catapillers look like?!) Thank hubby for us for giving you a moment to get the picture! It was worth of the wait!

I left you a note on my site since the subject was broached a couple of times...xox, Grams

wOw! It does look like a beautiful robe. It make he laugh to think about a moth putting on a robe. Love it!

Great shot! Our spouses put up with so much with us, don't they? :-) And, (going back a couple of posts) I love looking into windows at night too. I get so tickled seeing people doing the most mundane things. Eating dinner, putting on a coat, watching tv, etc. Let's chalk it up to being a photographer thing - always looking, looking, looking at the world....

hahahaha oh I get so many grumblings from my husband when I want to take a photo and he's in a hurry. I'm like really.... it's OK to be late every now and then.... hahaha! (this coming from a kid whose family was known as always being late to family gatherings)
I won't be late to our meet up in Mendocino though... I'm sure they have good brownies and lemonade. :)

Gorgeous tones, beautiful shot, multiply that by 1000 since you took it "on the fly" (errr should I say, "moth") and you've got another spectacular shot! Lovin' it!!
