Default A lucky moth

Spotted this fairly large moth being chased by a robin in the garden. Managed to "rescue" it and luckily it's main defence seemed to be to play dead so it was easy to photograph it before releasing it in a fairly safe place.

5Dmk2/MPE-65/430Ex flash focus stacks using zerene.

Looks like the moth is a bit bedraggled and could use a good grooming.
