Hey Fabs,
Very nice detail on one of my favorite moths! I like the pattern you chose and the lighting is excellent. It finally cooled off here in NJ....so I feel your pain!

I also feel your pain - hot and muggy - ugh! But this! What a wonderful abstract, Fabs! I think you chose exactly the right composition - nothing looks cut off and there's nothing here that doesn't add to the overall image. Everything is sharp and detailed - super image!

I wonder what this would look like run through Fractalius? ;)
