really a great capture of this well camouflaged moth. We have similar looking species in Europe such as Gastropacha quercifolia of the family Lasiocampidae. Beautiful light, excellent sharpness and nice composition.
Best wishes, Peter

Awesome display of an animal that demonstrates it cryptic colors and mimicry. Your entire shot is well executed showing excellent control of the lighting scenario. :)

You have caught natures camouflage at its best. Wonderful shot, the sharpness and lighting is great. TFS
Much interesting moth. I'm not sure if there was any of that one on TN. Would be interesting to know the latin name.
Technically perfect shot, with a beautiful light effect.
I added your pic to the "camouflage"

Murali I am sure it must have been a superb experience and pretty sad experience to say. Lovely clarity and what a sharpness. Excellent one Ganesh

What a spectacular creature! A true master of camouflage, indeed!
You did terrific in capturing this wonderful insect and you did great to choose this POV in which the legs are visible...otherwise a difference from a true bunch of leaves would have been very difficult :))
The details are great - very clear and sharp and the DOF is wonderful, creating a lovely bokeh in the BG.
The diagonal composition also works like a charm here.
Overall: a splendid shot!
Bravo and TFS

This is Fantastic!! This is the first time I am coming across such a marvelous creation of nature. Such a beautiful camouflage, I can't believe it. I really thought it was a bunch of dried leaves, covering some caterpillar. But when I read your notes and took a close look i couldn't believe my eyes.
You have captured this moth with excellent POV, sharpness and details.Good lighting and excellent blurred background that really helps the moth to stand out in the frame.

Namaste Murali. Incredible world we live in. All the more pity at the rate at which we are destroying it and all the sources of wonder, mystery and beauty- like your insect here. Well caught, excellent details. Regards. Klaudio.
