just recently went apple-picking and was more distracted by this moth flying about. when it finally landed, it took me a bit to find it!

Image

it was a bit temperamental, so even getting close was difficult -- otherwise, i would've removed the leaf from the foreground. but i was pleased with the result, having only a few minutes to shoot. in retrospect, i don't mind the out of focus leaf in the foreground, as it hides the elusive little bugger even more.

any advice? i'm using a rather elementary camera despite the fact that i do have access to manual and av/tv modes.

post it! your photos are fantastic; i really enjoy viewing them.

have you an idea of what kind of moth this is? i don't think i had actually seen one before this, unless i just never saw it land on a leaf before.
