Another NX 60mm Macro

I was weeding around the Dragon's Blood Sedum at the base of my rock garden when I saw what looked like tiny white hairs sticking out from under the foliage. At closer inspection, on my knees and bending over the foliage trying not to hit my head on the rock behind it, I saw a tiny Hyphantria moth hiding underneath. It is June and that is not expected, as these moths usually don't turn up until August or September.

Inside I went for my NX-1 and 60mm Macro, hoping the moth would stay. There was no way to set up a mini-tripod, so I rested my head against the rock to steady it and took a manually focused image with the best depth of field I could muster handheld.

Here is that Hyphantria moth:

This image is downsized from the full sized (16:9 crop only) original. If you'd like to see the original, it's here on my website .

Comments are always welcome.
