Ovidiu, this is beautiful! I am in love with the color of this BG (a beautiful change from the normal "green") and the moth is in focus from antenna through the body. You even managed to get him on a perch that echoes the colors of himself and his surroundings - a really well put together image.

This is wonderful, Ovidiu! The colors, comp and clarity are all great. I might have been tempted to clone away those 2 plant filaments from between the antennae and the perch but that is a very minor point and really it's fine as is.

Congrats Ovidiu!, very well captured. Great details and tones of color. Like the contrast of the black feathery things on it's head.

Ovidiu, I love the image for all the reasons mentioned above. Was this a natural BG? The colour compliments the moth very well.

Jackie, BG is natural, shoot this on herbage field, lots of herbs similar to the perch, also nice morning sun and this turned out as a nice colour and clean BG.
Thanks for comments.
