Moth

I know some people get freaked out by moths. Thankfully I'm not one of those people.

Moths are hard to photograph.



But they're rather extraordinary when you get up close.

I'm not sure that they even have a face. 

But they have an amazing symmetry.

And such a beauty in the details. 

There really is beauty everywhere if you look.
It's one of the reasons I like taking photos.

One of the advantages of taking photos of moths, of course, is that they rest with the wings down so you can see their beautiful patterns.
Great close up of the 'face' by the way :-)

Your close-up photos are amazing! Such intricate patterns. Even if moths aren't as colorful as butterflies, they're still beautiful.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today and leaving a comment.

I"m actually not freaked out by moths (many other insects and all arachnids yes, but not moths), yet I had never really seen one up close. Very cool! Thanks for sharing!

While I'm not one who'd freak out when seeing a moth, but I admit I love the butterfly more. You have some great shots here.

Well taken from all angles. Such a beautiful design on the wings.

Moths do get a bad rap when compared to butterflies. What interesting photos you have here. You're right, there's beauty everywhere.
