Well done on a challenging capture of a rapidly moving subject in low light.

The moth looks upside down! Very nice idea for the theme!

I just love captures like this, and this is one of my top pics! Nice detail on the moth, and just a great action capture.

I really like the take of visually capturing the imagery of "a moth to a flame". The moth is very well light such that we can make out details on it's wings, body and even attenae. I think the visual impact of the image would be strengthened if the flame were more detailed in the shot. As it appears here it is overexposed and an undefined blob of light. Another area that could go a long ways to strengthening the wow factor would have been to illuminate the latern that holds the candle - seeing the details in that object too would add some more visual interest to hold the eye's attention. Still, this is a well done shot.
