Close up 2

I forgot to add what I think is possibly my best entry for the Close Up competition.

Wing expansion phase of the White Satin Moth.


White Satin Moth expanding its wings

Taken with my Panasonic Lumix from a distance of about 7.5cm. 1/500 sec @ f 6.3

I had to get up early in the morning to get this shot.

Good job it was not capable of flying away.

About crosbyman66

My aim is to create a photo diary of my walks and my travels. I have two main hobbies, walking and photography and these complement each other. I am a senior citizen, what used to be called an old age pensioner, but I don't feel old. Since retirement I have had more time to pursue my hobbies and the opportunity to travel more. My philosophy now is - Do what you can, while you can. My other interests are fine wines and keeping fit. These may not complement each other but keep me happy.

    Thanks for your comment.
    It was a fantastic day. Later the moths were flying around in their hundreds, no thousands. It was like walking through a snowstorm.
