    Now THIS is a nice, and UNUSUAL perspective!!! These little daisies look really large and their tiny stems like TRUNKS. Cool photo (with wonderful colours :D).
    Oh, and yes, I like how you captured this moth here, too! :D

    Heyyy, nice one Kelox. I love the backlighting on the moth, and the 4 strong colours. Great job.

    Great photo, Kelox - love the backlighting and the strong vertical/horizontal features provided by the stems and the flower 'platform'. You might be interested to know that's not a moth (although it does look like one) but a Skipper butterfly (probably the Large Skipper, Ochlodes venatus).

    One way to tell the difference (at least among British species) is that butterflies have 'clubbed' antennae whereas moths have 'brushes' or 'feathers' at the tips of theirs; it's not a foolproof or very scientific distinction though.
