IO Moth

     
  IO Moth  
     
This is a newly-hatched IO Moth resting on a cedar tree trunk.
 
When photographing butterflies and moths at close distances, it is diffucult to keep their entire wing surfaces sharp. A narrow aperture and careful parallel sensor and wing alignment is key to this. Because this moth is somewhat rounded, I was still not able to keep the wing tips sharp at this focus distance even with an f/10.0 aperture.
 
Lighting is from direct late-day sunlight.
