Xata, C.Rayz have particularly liked this photo

This is stunning too! Really pretty. I think maybe Mullein Wave (Scopula marginepunctata) unless you have something we don't that is similar. That leaf looks like leather!

The dry leaf seemed to have a good color to contrast with the moth, and liked the result in general ... thanks for the comments, again !!!! :D
