Monochrome Weekly Theme

Photobucket

The hubby promised to buy me a decent camera, a Nikon D5000, as a birthday present. He must have noticed how addicted i become taking snaps of anything. Well, the money was spend to a better use- dental crowns and bridges. So, me and my ever reliable Casio EX-Z1000 Digital Camera still has a long way to go...a long, long way to go.

I am not sure if this is a butterfly. It's way too small to be such, it is even smaller than a fly. Whether it is or it is not, i surely enjoyed myself running after it...lol!

P.S....I did a bit of research about this particular moth after Dragonstar mentioned the Cinnabar Moth. It turns out it is indeed a moth, Syngamia Florella Moth.

  1. Looks rather like a Cinnabar Moth - does it have red & black wingd and a yellow-striped body?

    Shame about the camera, but this one obviously does very well.

  2. at first blush it strikes me as a moth...

    do understand about the camera issue, but where would be the challenge to produce such wonderful photos as this, with a fancier camera? -- *smile*

  7. beautiful macro Eng, it may be a moth, which like you, I often mistook as a tiny butterfly, and like you, though it may be small, but it brings giant joy :)

  10. I can picture you scurrying here and there, camera in hand, after that flying insect. Your patience paid off; that is a great picture and it looks real good in B&W. I'm sorry that you have to wait for your new camera.

  17. Butterfly or moth, it's very pretty & very cool!
    I know what you mean about wanting a new camera, but having to spend the money on more important things. I've been wanting a new camera for sooo long!
    Good luck

  18. Nice capture of a wee beastie. Too bad about the new camera - maybe next year?

  19. A lovely portrait of a delicate creature. New toys are nice but you do so well with what you already have. I lust after a Nikon D700 but am content with my old film cameras. New equipment is sooo very expensive these days.

  20. Great macro shot Ms. Eng, still beautfiful, whatever it is.

    And the dental crown and bridges..ouch! I can imagine how painful it was.....17 teeth Ms. Eng? whew!....panay ang take mo nyan ng analgesic. Oks lang yan mS. Eng, kahit wala pang Nikon D5000, magaganda pa rin ang mga shots mo.

  21. Your camrea must be pretty good because this is a great shot!

  22. I cannot imagine how much more you can do once you get your dream camera. Get something lighter and smaller so you can pack it around. I have a big camera and the weight is just unbearable after carrying it around.

    What a great shot Eng ! Love it !
