108 by ~Mantis17 Suggester writes: "This beautiful moth seems to be posing for the photographer, with every single detail so sharp you got the impression it's going to fly away soon. The green, blue, pink and brown chase each other, and flow into one another, in a way that couldn't be more perfect if it was planned in every detail."

I see it's evil eyes on it's wings! :noes: I have moth phobia so this freaked me out. Anyways, it still has nice colours but I don't think the moth is pretty just that the picture is great. ;P
