Jersey Tiger Moth

Fabulous markings, what a great find. I never have much luck photographing moths and butterflies, they have to be almost dead for me to keep up with them.

Lol, I hear you Babs, I got really lucky with this one... I think it had just emerged from its cocoon, it's wings were still quite crumpled. It sat still like this for ages before finally walking/fluttering up and over the fence. Pure luck really @onewing

Perfect exposure and I love the side lighting - it gives such texture to the wood.

Well captured.
Is the shadow over the moth deliberate or did you get lucky? It helps with the detail for sure.
