    Found this in my backyard. Hard to get it all in focus as the space around was tight. Unfortunately, no dew drops.

    f/11, 1/13, ISO 800

    Appreciate comments and suggestions

    Well spotted, I am sure if I had seen it i too would have taken the image. Well exposed and composed, purely from a personal viewpoint the image begs the question "what is it a picture of?" i.e. is the viewer meant to be concentrating on the moth or on the flower ..it is difficult to look at the flower and the moth, the moth is good but the flower head keeps drawing my eyes from the moth.....the flower is good but the moth is in the way.
    You may well not agree, it is after all your image and it does what you want it to do from your perspective, so don't take my comments to heart

    The rule of thirds placement of the moth is nice. Detail looks quite nice. The flower draws me right to the moth. The moth stands out against that bright yellow.

    John describes my thought process well. Often it is difficult to separate one from the other when they are so intertwined.
