It was poring rain and this moth was trying to get into a dry spot, landing on a weather awning, when I started to shoot was lucky enough to catch a rain drop falling at the same time.

What a pretty little thing! And I like how the dots on the wings resemble rain drops. Nice contrast against the gray, too.

I can't help but wonder how you contrived this?!

Lost a lot of detail along the way in the moth.

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: Well - I was never sure how to address the 'All things being equal' challenge. This is inspiring! Lovely composition - the title actually really helps the eye to decode the image too. Great colours and bags of interest.

Critical stuff: Focus - I can't help but think that I'd like to see the moth in sharper focus.

Overall: Very unusual FS entry. Very put-on-the-wall-able too. Great stuff.
