Taken in Tucson, AZ. with a Canon SX110IS

Despite its bright, bold coloration, diurnal (daytime) habits, and strange, beetle-like or wasp-like appearance, the Veined Ctenucha (Ctenucha venosa) is actually a moth. Here in North America, Veined Ctenucha moths are found mainly in the southwestern United States and in Mexico.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
