    This is the first time I saw this moth up close, I've always seen it fly by me but it would never sit still long enough for me to get a shot. Today I got that chance. I had to act quick so some weren't as sharp as I would have liked but not a bad first time :)

    1/160 f11 ISO400 using available light handheld 100-400 with 68mm Kenko tubes

    Very impressive getting sooo much detail out of the tubes and lens too. The lighting is fantastic, well done indeed :) and a stunning creature to boot.
