Gorgeous ephemeral one.

Great, Leana! ...eye in focus, clear veins on wings, hint of peeled tail end, the colour white, clear background, perching on a vine, what else? Everything falling in line!

Thank you Mark and Gilma!

That is one lovely Hopper, the wings looks so beautiful in your pictures, Leana Lahom-Cristobal.

Good shot Leanna. This one has fabulous wings. Flatidae can be really annoying when searching for moths because, like you say, they fly the same way.
