Sublime Symmetry

I know that the patterns on moths are always symmetrical, but I think this is especially noticeable in the Angle Shades moth. I love the curve of the wing, the colours are sublime, blending in to create a thing of beauty. This one’s on the maple tree in our garden.

What a picture, Carrie! I’ve been a fan of butterflies my entire life, but I must admit I didn’t give much thought to moths. With just two pictures, you’ve changed my ignorance to fascination. This one looks like a Native American blanket – such a gorgeous and intricate pattern!

Great to have 2 hobbies in one, Carrie. I do the photography but not macro.

Moths are so underrated! I love the contrast in colour between the moth and the leaf in this picture.

It looks so pretty. It really stands out on the dark red maple tree. I love maple trees.
