Some nights, I dread prepping the picture post for the next day. Last night, was one of those nights. I was tired, and I did not have any pictures I felt were good enough to share. Then, I brought the dogs in for the night.
When I closed the patio door, I noticed a beautiful moth on the screen. “Perfect!” I thought.
If you liked it, please share it.

I am married. We have two boys, two dogs, and two cats. I am on the Oxford Comma team. I look forward to my first large cup of coffee, black, every single morning, and I look forward to that second large cup of coffee, still black, every single afternoon.

Oh my gosh Lenore!!!! You are seriously amazing at this!
Thank you, Kim. I was glad this guy was out when I was getting ready for bed. He made my job easy. (smile)
I have that feeling a LOT.
A shot like this would sure help that, though!
Awesome detail and lighting… love the long, dramatic shadows, too!
This makes me want to visit the Butterfly House again! A.S.A.P.!
Is this a combination of on-camera flash and maybe a porch light?
I rarely have such success with my flash.
Yes, SIG. The on-camera flash was used, as well as a flood light. I was very pleased with this picture. I didn’t have to modify it at all – with the exception of the black border, which I always add.
I look forward to your shots from the butterfly house. Hurry along …
Who wouldda thunk it? A moth with character and beauty…

I know! Without the light, the moth looked ordinary, with the exception of its size. This particular moth is quite large. When I put a light on it – I realize the beauty of the wings and snapped… I snapped the picture, not the wings.
Love the special effect!
(I’m back from vacation and getting caught up on reading posts. 🙂 )
Welcome back, Jackie! Just in time for Friday Five!! 🙂
Pretty moth! I love it when a post appears just in the nick of time, too!
Me, too, Patti.
A great photo, and it is a lovely colour, well done. 🙂
Hello Mags, thank you very much.
We had one of these at my front door the other day. She stayed for a night and a day and then disappeared. My friends and I named her Lunesta. Her wings were so pretty, I want a comforter that looks just like them.
Good shot Lenore!
