    I can't believe how friendly this giant moth was.. I got 60+ photos like this, here are my favorites. I did some :study: and found out it's a Tersa Sphinx moth :)

    I dont know what it is with Pyro and bugs but I think I have an idea. He lives down in Lousiana with me, and we have soooo many bugs that its the most handy subject!

    It doesn't look real does it? IT looks like it's made out of silk in the first one.
    You've done a cracking job. The lighting is fantastic and the fingers in the third (which is my favourite) really add to it. You seem to have got a massive dof for such a small subject to.

    The DOF is just because I had to use the flash, so I set the aperture to 8.0 (as high as it goes on my camera)
