Looks like it's a tiny bit out of focus. Great background. I would have cropped out the 3 little branches from the bottom because they are a little destracting. Nice shot.

Looks like it was taken hand held. Colors are too bluish/cyan.

Pretty. Nicely blurred background isolates the subject well. A bit more sharpness wouldn't hurt, though, and there's quite a lot of fringing.

Nice DOF, though I think the moth could be a little sharper.

This little fellow is not a moth, but a butterfly (most likely a tailed blue or a hairstreak), but isn't he cute?!

The light of the 'fringed' wings is very nice...the circle (s) upper right are distracting and possibly a tighter crop nmight have been more effective

I never see them stay still long enough to take the picture. Well done

Nicely backlit moth. Superb background. Only thing I don't like is the composition... I don't think centred butterflies/ moths work well in photos, especially as the eye is drawn primarily to the eyes first. With a different crop, I would have given this a 10. Instead: 9

A true butterfly (hairstreak I think). Focus a bit soft.
