    Remarkable image! What a critter… colors are splendid, & the blue flower doesn’t hurt….

  • Thanks.Well,perhaps the blue flower is a bit too distracting.I’m not sure about that yet….

    I like the blue – I wouldn’t change a thing. My eye goes right to that unbelievable (but I believe it… I looked it up) moth, then eases through the green to the blurry blue & back again. Invites a lot of looking, as a good picture should.

  • Thanks!I think I’ll leave it like it is.:)
