Two moths (in this case from Argentina) that are apparently widespread pests across the warmer parts of the Americas

Anticarsia gemmatalis aka the velvetbean worm alias la polilla sojera - it's currently overwhelming a number of argentinean provinces with large soybean acreages




Diaphania hyalinata aka the melon moth



Both caught with a65 + Sigma 70 2.8 macro

A99ii + 70-400G

Not a friend of many people, since the caterpillar of this species destroys all buxus plants.
If anyone thinks: "That sky looks familiar", well it's my first attemp with a standard sample of the sky replacement tool in Luminar 4, trying to improve the boring sky (and hide the dirty window )

very pretty, Fred!
and a very clean window!
does it work well, that tool? bombarded with offers to buy Luminar, On1 and so on, but obv. bought Luminar 2018 as part of that year's 5DayDeal.
(speaking of... skies -and obv. into all kinds of glowing phenomena- just saw a 'lighting night cloud' aka noctilucent cloud. and guess what? (I saw after I grabbed a camera?) ).


speaking of ...caterpillars?














they multiply!


look once and you'll see none. look again and you'll see thousands...

Thanks Ine!
The tool works very well and easy. Just recently grabbbed an offer combined with a coupnon code. Couldn't let it go for that price.

Lucky you with the noctilucent clouds! Managed to capture them last year.
https://www.dyxum.com/dforum/clouds-4_topic128039_post1583708.html#1583708 - last year remember?

I haven't seen the caterpillars here yet. They look nice, but a petty they are so destructive on the buxuses

Today this poor creature was stuck in a spider web in our garden

You could see the fear in its eyes
https://pegelli.smugmug.com/Other/202008/i-t4L8kZk/A">


So I freed it from the web and in return it agreed to pose for me on the garden table

It even let me get a bit closer for a headshot

This one required way too many attempts to get the shot.

https://flic.kr/p/2mheNb8">

It was after the sunset when many of them appeared on our verbena. Manual focusing was a hit and miss process and those moths turned out to be very skittish. Skittish and fast as hell. Flash and sound of the shutter/mirror caused them to flee and frequently I was getting a snap of ... just verbena Or something like this

Yes, very difficult. Good job to get a good one. I had a hard enough time during the bright daylight with the manual focus. They move so quickly and skittish.

Beautiful! I wish I had such butterflies in my backyard ;)

Instead I only have such poor critters:

This one sat down on my trousers - I had hard time taking the shot - a bit of stretching exercise for me ;)
