    Thanks to all of you for your comments. I managed 5 shots and this was by far the best. I will be going back this spring to see if I can get lucky again. The pany 45-200 performed very well. Thanks, again!!

    A fine finish in a top field. A Challenging capture and an impossible one for many clearer found much appreciation in the voters who know how difficult this is to do. Congratulations!

    Great catch, nice exposure, detail etc., in my top 10. I usually see one of these once or twice a year and miss the shot I want to take.

    I've tried getting a shot of these before, so I know how tough it can be. That was some great luck having him come to you!
In my TT.

    This is amazing capture and my number 1! I have seen them before and got a photo but it was nothing of the quality you have captured here. A fantastic job. GL

    Great to look at especially when it is snowing outside. Reminds me of summer. I like the title, too.

    The title made me smile. =)

I like this for all its sharpness but maybe a portrait orientation would work better to draw the eye up the same as the direction of the moth.

    Beautiful! I know how difficult it is to get a good shot of this moth as I've tried before. This is very well done. Good luck!

    You certainly 'seized the day' (or rather the moment). I can imagine your excitement. Very nice photo. My tt

    Beautiful capture - I can see why you would be excited. I love the colours and the way you cropped the photo to highlight the moth
