Moth (4) - revisited:

Peter -

This was a tough shot! You've got the bright sunlight illuminating the yellow blossom; unfortunately, the underside of the moth's wing and shaded abdomen are another story.

You did a wonderful job of getting the correct exposure of the moth's undersides without blowing out the yellow blossoms.

Catching the pollen on the end of the moth's antenna is a nice touch.

Great shot!
