No moth topic? Looks like I'll have to start one.

Moth against the kitchen window, in an awkward position for a photo as I had to stretch over the sink and a wide sill.
KM7D and Tamron 90 at 1/3 sec at f/5.6 and ISO 3200

I recently posted this moth in the butterfly thread.
I think it fits much better here.

Also sitting on a glass window, actually in our batroom and I was standing in the bathtub (empty) to get close enough.

I would kind of hope that people would put the moths in with the other Lepidopterans (butterflies) albeit that hasn't been used for a while

You had me thinking you had bats for a minute

I thought about posting in the butterfly thread but thread title didn't mention moths, and a search for "moths" didn't produce anything. If the mods want to combine them it's fine by me.

The invertebrate threads are quite haphazard I'm afraid, with a lot of stuff not have a specific home. I've pushed for clarifying the butterflies into a general "Lepidopteran" thread (moths and butterflies).

Here's a couple of gum-emperor moths anyway...

Nice shot! How did you avoid flash reflection off the window?

I will close off the butterflies thread and this can be the new one.

I should have said it is an Atlas Moth from S.E.Asia with a Tamron 70-300mm

I just remembered this one as well - I think it might be called a White Tree nymph also from S.E. Asia (In a Great Butterfly Farm on Anglesey in North Wales)

Lovely shots Drluap, and Pili Palas is only a few miles from here. I went about 20 years ago, looks like another visit is in order

As pointed out we don't have a batroom . Silly typo, it's amazing what I overlook.

Flash was from ~45 degrees by an on-camera 3600 with a lumi-quest bounce reflector. I experimented from the right and from the left (by rotating the cam 180 deg) and the one from the right (this one) came out best.

I also cloned out some scratches and dust spots on the window-pane in PP, since the glass surface became nice and dark but every little spec catches a lot of light which doesn't look good.
