Small Magpie Moth

Posted by Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 6 July 2017 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Been spending some time getting used to my macro lens, I brought it a while ago but only just really getting into using it and this lovely little moth was a perfect subject.


Unfortunately I don't seem to have as much time as I would like at the present to get on AM3, but I am putting shots on from time to time and will try to visit others when I can.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.
