Elephant Hawk moth Extreme macro

Elephant Hawk moth Extreme macro
An extreme macro photograph of arguably the most beautiful colorful of the British Moths, this is the elephant Hawk Moth (deilephila elpenor). it is from the Sphingidea family, which are know as the Sphinx moths or Hornworms in America. Unlike the vast majority of moths, this is highly colored, in pinks and green, mirroring the leaves and flowers of the caterpillars' foodplant the Rosebay Willowherb. The high magnification shows just how hairy these are and gives you a view of the individual facets which make up the compound eye. The white on the right is a foreleg and one antenna is seen emerging from the top left of the eye

Amazing macro! I was surprised by the colour of this moth when I first saw a photo of one. Did you use flash?

Hi Rachel, yes I did use a flash - pretty much a necessity at this magnification (the lens is 1.4 inches away so hard to get light directly on the subject). It is an amazing coloured insect, not the normal browns you associate with moths and certainly the brightest coloured of all the UK moths

A breathtaking macro and a beautiful moth! One of those visited us 2 days ago but the photos I took of it weren't satisfactory. It was the first time in my life that I saw a moth like this. It's special indeed.
