As I focus on this Red Tail moth, it appears to be focusing in turn on my camera lens.

As I adjust my focus, the orange underside of the Red Tail moth (Hypopyra capensis) can be seen to contrast with the dark wings.


But when I focus on the moth from above it can be confusing. Is it a moth or is it leaf? I have to keep adjusting my focus and even then, it can be hard to tell.


This post is in response to this week’s photo challenge, with the invitation “to show us your favorite in-focus and out-of-focus moments”. For other bloggers images on this theme click here
