I always like shooting insects on window panes because of the reflections. So when this moth landed on the bathroom mirror — bliss. Since the main reflection originates from the silver layer behind the thick mirror glass, it gives an altogether floating impression, unlike reflection on window glass (e.g. here or here).

You have to like its antlers! Can anybody identify the critter?

    Holy cow these are amazing! Fantastic detail, color and reflection. I will definitely need to be on the look out for the mirror technique come warmer months with flying critters.
