Stunning shot Ann. The way the light comes through the wings shows how thin and delicate they are... like tinted glass.

The moth is without doubt a real beauty but your photography has enhanced all the best features. I love the light and shadow. Very beautiful - thanks !

#2 is just more beautiful, besides being more helpful for ID. I almost overlooked it during my quick screening ("Oh, no, not a green one again...")...

Thanks so much for your ID help Dominik!
And sorry yes I know the 2nd shot is more helpful when it comes to making an ID...

Geometridae, Ennominae, Cassymini, Zamarada sp., but not Excisa. I suggest that you take #2 as #1!
