With the Emperor Moth season gaining pace I wanted to try and get a decent shot of the under-side of a male, while they are still fresh.
This spectacular moth is more common than most people realise, but to see one is always a special moment and to get a specific type of photo of them can never be guaranteed, but I was still quite hopeful, and after getting the photo, very pleased.
This angle really shows the spectacular feathered antennae which the male moth uses to find the female. It is thought the male can pick up the female pheromones from around a mile away with these antennae.
