Sally D's Mobile Photography Challenge: Macro (Phalaenoides glycinae)

I’ve photographed this pretty Aussie Grapevine Moth (Phalaenoides glycinae) last year, but not managed to so far in 2016 – until today. However, this one was very subdued and jumped on to my hand when I reached for a grape. Sort of puts one off eating the grapes just thinking that one of these moths may have pumped eggs in already!  I did see a tiny caterpillar a few days ago.

I’m tagging these  for Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Macro.


The moth settled on an old hand towel on the clothesline.  Looks like one of my gray hairs fell out and settled on the towel, too.




Images taken with the Nokia Lumia 520 Windows Phone, on auto I’ve cropped and reduced the size.







Saved the best until last.  Thanks for looking.    🙂








I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

    1. I’m so lucky that my cheap windows phone will take these photos, Julie. I’ve been thinking of getting a ‘real’ camera (I do have a point and shoot) and hadn’t considered I’d probably have to get a proper macro lens for it. Having macro has certainly opened my eyes to the wonders in my garden! I even marvel at the texture of the old towel. 🙂


Tell me what you're thinking.
