The note should've been probably applied to another shot, what's done is done anyway... This moth has kind of a 1/3 wing size feather on its nape like one bird-of-paradise does that's fluttered in the wind in waves, pretty stunning to see :)

Albeit the photo is quite good in its gloomy way, it's definitely inferior to the author's note ;--)
