It was close to 6pm. As winter is approaching it was getting dark. I saw this insect sitting and resting in our park. Went inside my house and luckily the insect was still resting. Click click. You can see the darker shades in the right side due to shadow of the tree.

A moth is an insect closely related to the butterfly. Both are of the order Lepidoptera. The division of Lepidopterans into moths and butterflies is a popular taxonomy, not a scientific one. Sometimes the names "Rhopalocera" (butterflies) and "Heterocera" (moths) are used to formalize the popular distinction. Many attempts have been made to subdivide the Lepidoptera into groups such as the Microlepidoptera and Macrolepidoptera, Frenatae and Jugatae, or Monotrysia and Ditrysia. Failure of these names to persist in modern classifications is due to the fact none of them represents a pair of "monophyletic groups". The reality is that butterflies are a small group that arose from within the "moths," and there is thus no way to group all of the remaining taxa in a monophyletic group, as it will always exclude that one descendant lineage.

Primero, muchas gracias por tus comentarios.
Tu foto excelente ampliación con gran naturalidad en el color. DE MOMENTO NO SE QUE INSECTO ES, CON TIEMPO INTENTARÉ IDENTIFICARLA.

Hi Ganesh,
Beautiful moth picture. This shot is well in focus and nice exposure. I also have a similar looking moth in my portfolio. Very well done.

Very subtle patterns and textures in this shot Ganesh.
It looks as though it was shot in black and white mode. Is that so ?
A beautiful butterfly.

This is a sharp picture of a soft insect.; You have made it look very "pretty" and delicate. In it's off white is looks new and thrilled to be around.

Hello Ganeshan,
Beautiful picture of this delicate beauty. Good POV , sharpness and details. I liked the way you have diagonally composed the picture.

Hello ganesh,
Ha-ha, I like the title! Very suitable!
Nice capture of a species of Geometer moth that looks like our European genus Scopula.
Excellent composition, sharpness and lighting.
This is a really nice shot!

Hello Ganesh,
a very detailed view of this obviously small Geometride moth. As 'Argus' says, it looks similar to European Scopula. I don't know a specialist on Indian Scopula-like species. So, it will not be easy to identify.
Sharpness is very good, even the scales of the wing margin are nicely seen.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Narayan

A great composition - you have achieved a great abstract quality in this shot.


Hi Ganesh Ji,
A beautiful moth you have captured. Good details and a nice composition. Looks almost black & white. Thanks a lot for sharing.
