    That is a beauty Chandrasekharan. I might have preferred going slightly further down to be directly above the moth, however in that case, you would have lost out on the eyes. The highlights from the concrete at the bottom are a bit distracting. Reducing them might be better. Thanks for sharing. Good to see you back on the forum.

    My favourite insect. Looks so much like a camouflage-painted fighter jet.
    Would have been better if you could have photographed in on a plant or other natural object. Did you try any other compositions? I see you photographed it with your cell phone, so I don't think critiquing will help here.
    Thanks for sharing. Look forward to more from you.

    Agree with Abhishek, the shape does look like a fighter plane . Wish it was perched on something more natural. Do post the equipment and EXIF details. Thanks for sharing.
