First glance at the picture, what strikes me the most is the feelers of the moth I have to say. Then I look at the pretty flower and how the stem seems to vanish into a cloud of darkness at the bottom. So I'd say the focus was set very well. What really captures my attention though is the change of color. The difference in color of the far right and left of the photo is big. But in the middle, there's the moth. It was definitely well captured and the impact is great. I don't know why, but it makes me think of peace and war. I know, I know, it's a picture of a moth but the colors kind of make me think of the little guy as neutral and the other colors of two opposing sides. Either way, the image is slightly startling but in a good way. I like it :)
