      Yes, I like these too. This is REALLY detailed. I was getting these all last fall. Nice capture of all of the tufty bits. I find it a little hard to get them in focus.

      Mathew, I try to align the plane of my lens with the plane of the side of the moth - guess I was successful with this one. =)

      Sea Moon, there are lots of different tufty looper moths - this one can be recognized by this particular coloring and that particular white marking. I had to sift through a bunch on BugGuide before I found a match.

      Seen on your photo stream. (?)

      You have got fantastic focus on this one! I find it is not always easy to do. :)

      Thanks, Jean! You're right - I'm always excited when I get it all like that - have to get on the same plane as the wing. =)
