These males have very long antennae. They seems to be active only in sunlight.

The antennae are waved around most of the time, making stereo pairs difficult to obtain. In the one here, the right antenna appears only in one frame. As there is no visual conflict, it works well. The stereo is crosseye.

Olympus EM-1 (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/500 or 1/640 at f11 ISO 4,000, hand-held.

I wanted to get some better images but the weather forecast was grim. To my surprise, there was blue sky with hardly a cloud.

I wandered to the spot where I had found them, to see if the sunlight had reached it yet. There, close to, but not in, a shaft of sunlight was a group of about a dozen moths forming a small cloud with aerobatics performed inside it.

I fetched my camera and had just 10 minutes before they departed. This time, there was almost no waving of the antennae so I did get some better images. Here are some single frames, with stereos to follow later.

Here are the improved crosseye stereos I promised.
