Beautiful well saturated colours in this photo of the rare Burnet Moths. Also a great OOF BG. Excellent sharp details and composition. Good POV and DOF.

Hi Ivan,not easy to take so perfectly these insects.They have terrible reflection and you manage very well the light for the best result as possible.Certainly the POV isn't the best to show the mating moment,but is very interesting,rare and unusual.Thanks for share,have a nice weekend,LUCIANO

you are very critical and very inquisitive. thanks for that, if not I will not return to the same spot to see the development of the yellow heade fungi. I got it, maybe I upload it in day ot two.
This mating moment is well captured in such a spledid capture. the colours are very intense and rich. The details is superbly rendered.
Excellent piece of professional work.

It's always exciting to see something rare but to be able to get such an excellent shot deserves a double congratulations. I marvel at your knowledge of not only photography but of nature's creatures as well. These moths are beautiful with wonderful colors and fine details. I love the background and composition.
on the thumnail i saw one butterfly, then i read the title,
when i opened the photo i was searching the other butterfly,
then i found it is a little bit off-focus, the focus beeing done
on the first one, i have never done macro photos Ivan,
i have never shot with a DSLR but i think if you had shot
this photo with a compact instead of DSLR maybe
you should also have in focus the other butterfly,
or maybe i am wrong Ivan, TFS
Félicitations pour cette magnifique image de zygènes! I didn't know this species. The composition of your picture is just perfect, amazing light and most beautiful color-combination. I wonder what kind of flower the butterflies are posed on?
Un grand merci pour ce posting spécial

Interesantes observacines Ivan. Curiosamente creo que yo también la capturé hace pocas semanas, en otro momento lo comprobaré, aunque lógicamente sin las variantes que tu comentas en las alas. Buenos colores. La definición en la cabeza algo justa. Buen documento.
Saludos: Josep Ignasi.
