    Neat! Looks like a sweet confection not a real critter.

    Amazing macros. Do you mind if I ask what lens you used on these and did you use any extention tubes?

    Moths on the windowframe - I know it well! :)
    Hope you don't mind if I steal the id - I think met one of these beauties the other day.

    I like your shooting angles in both - though I think you need to focus just a little closer, its great to see that furry back and body in detail, but don't miss the eys either (first looks ok second just missed)

    Also like the feeling of how big the moth is in your second shot - he looks big
