I like everything about this image. Colours, details, subject isolation and sharpness, movement blur of the wings, dynamism, composition.

Knowing how small these critters are, the eye and body pin sharp is really remarkable.

The moth looks great, love the capture of the wing motion, and the buddleia setting.

This is really lovely-everything looks clean and sharp, and the colors are so beautiful. I believe the species is correct, and what a beautiful specimen. Love these moths and similar "butterfly" moths.
