If you've ever sat outside on a porch at night in the summer, you've no doubt seen moths come fluttering to the light. Similar to, but not part of the butterfly family, there are thought to be over 250,000 different types of moths. From a photography standpoint, moths can be one of the hardest insects to shoot because they are nocturnal. Shooting time is very limited and either requires the use of a flash or very high ISO. Because of shooting situations, it's not overly common to see high quality macro shots, so enjoy these macro moth photos.
