The top one. Nicely done, and nice-looking moth that looks like a character from fantasy fiction. One could look at it and start writing a story . . .

When you get old you fly with what you've got left.

It is amazing how much of a beating they take and still are mobile.
Probably similar to WW2 planes that were shot to pieces but still flew.
Something about their design.

I went for a walk looking for butterflies and moths this afternoon but didn't get a single shot. Then when I got home there was an American lady waiting for me.

Last year I bought a kit so I could raise some Swallowtail Butterflies (Papilio machaon) and this is a frame with the Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens set to about 4x. Image taken in Bacoli, Italy in May of 2020.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (set to around 4x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. In post I used Topaz Sharpen AI and Clarity in that order.
