This is my first photo of a moth. I don't know much about them, so I have no idea what species it is. It's about 10 mm length. There are lots of beautiful moth photos in TN, but I haven't seen any of that bigger, colourful, beautiful ones. Hope I see in the future. This one I've taken, has a beautiful eyes to me.

Thank you...

It belongs to Tortricidae family and it is Olethreutes lacunanus. For identification, many many thanks to Monika, professor at Maria Curie-Sklodowska University ;-)

The Tortricidae (leafrollers) are one of the largest families of the so-called micro-lepidoptera, with over 5000 described species and a large number still to be recorded, especially in the tropics. Though worldwide in distribution, the family is more strongly represented in temperate and tropical upland regions then in the lowland tropics and probably reaches its greatest diversity in the moss forests of tropical latitudes.

The family is of great economical importance: the larvae of many representatives cause major economic damage in agriculture, horticulture and forestry on a wide variety of crops including pome and stone fruits, citrus fruits, grapes, ornamental crops, tea, coffee, cereals and cotton. In forestry, many species of both coniferous and deciduous trees are attacked by the pest species.

Hi Ersin,
I can't help with the ID, but if you want to see a big and beautiful Moth look here. Great shot you have here, nice detail, perfect colours and excellent dark background. Flash control is great too, nice light and no glare. Great work!

I can't help for ID, but I like your photo very much. Colors and patterns on the moth's wngs are great. Excellent sharpness, details, composition and BG. Very well done !

Hello Ersin,
Very good shot! I can't help with ID. I don't think I've seen such moth before. It has very interesting colours.
The black BG become your trademark! ;-)
But it very often works great. I think it is that way here. Picture has very good POV and details too.

I dig up a little for the ID. I think this can be a moth from Tortricidae family, probably Olethreutes species (maybe Olethreutes lacunanus).
