Orange moth of some kind (I've heard the name before, can't think of what it is though)



A100, tam90, f/3.5, ISO 400, 1/800 -- focus was on the head, DOF a little thin, but I wanted to keep the OOF areas nice and blurry. No crop, a little sharpening.

@alpha_in_exile: Your "orange moth" is a fritillary butterfly of some sort.

Here's three of a Common Blue Polyommatus icarus that was posing nicely for me at the weekend.

Thanks John and Tim. If only the Marbled Whites that I had gone there to see had been so cooperative! They didn't settle for a second.
