Bravo Sergio!

E una rara e bella falena, credo che non aveva visto prima. I colori sono eccellenti, di regolare la luminosit in modo tale che permette un buon contrasto tra il verde degli insetti, e il resto del gruppo. Molto buona la messa a fuoco e la composizione eccellente.

Grazie per la condivisione, felice Domenica!
