Moth -Exclamation Point- by Vlarg Moth -Exclamation Point- by Vlarg
I had a pirate themed party this past summer and consequently, I hung pirate flags up all around the back yard. The next day, we found this H U G E buffalo moth on one of my flags. (It had at least a 4 inch wing span) So of course, I had to shoot it. (My back yard has a bizarre propensity for attracting huge bugs)

Camera: Minolta DiMage A2
ISO: 100
F-Stop: F3.5
Exposure Time: 1/10 sec

Once again - nice capture of details. ;)

Never have seen a moth with that kind of colours... Well maybe it is the region I live in. :)

Here...I added this [link] to my scraps so you can see some other views of the moth. It'll give you a clue as to what it looked like...it's called a buffalo moth because of the size.

Thank you! I have a propensity toward macro shots...I'm not sure why. I had a Fuji Finepix S7000 for a while which was awesome because it has a 'super macro' feature that lets you focus on objects up to 1 cm from the lens. (Using this I was able to photograph a peep hole (filling the frame!) with both it and the outside in focus...)

Much less intimidating than the spider. I don't know... I think I would prefer something not quite so close up. It leaves something to be desired.

::Nods:: Well...I have plenty of full body shots and the like...but I didn't take those laying the ground trying to peek through a camera...which my favorite way of taking pictures. :P

That is incredible, and not nearly as scary as the spider. It looks like a fuzzy little bird.
I'm very impressed with the textures in it. And also kinda terrified that its going to appear and eat me.

giant moths, giant spiders... what will happen next?

I don't know...we had a fairly large katydid in our yard once...but I didn't get any decent shots of that one. :P I was amazed with it because it looks like of like D'Artagnan from the Three Musketeers. My friend nicknamed it the "Swashbuckler Moth."
