from the pics you and Anya post to be more observant of what is around me when I am hiking. This is just an amazing picture, I
never would have seen the "beauty" in a moth as you have captured.

My wife and I also started paying more attention to our surroundings while on hikes since we started photographing and browsing through photos on SP. Regards, Henryk.
