Most importantly, thank you for the support. I tried two ways with Flickr. The one you suggested and also directly copying and pasting the page code from the internet search bar. I got absolutely nothing from the first and a broken image from the second. I also went into my Flickr settings to see if there was anything holding me up due to public search options. I didn't find anything obvious.
Since the post above contained the second way, I will give the first way one more try (your recommendation).
Sorry, I certainly didn't intend to make you look stupid. I should mention that it actually doesn't work every time. I think it needs the photo link to be correctly formatted first. It could be an issue with some photo hosting websites too. I am not actually a computer geek, so I don't know why photos sometimes display properly and sometimes don't.
One issue could be with the preview pane. We actually don't recommend using it for photos, as it can disrupt the formatting for some reason.
I must say, that is a superb photo. Can you tell us the location and date, I am sure many readers will be interested to know where the specimen was found.
No apologies needed, I made myself look stupid and no one else. I'll pay that price for progress anytime. I really do appreciate that you were able to make work what I could not.
I've labeled the moth Nemoria bistriaria but any of my determinations are subject for discussion. It came in to my UV light on the night of June 29, 2019 near Gettysburg, PA.
What you are looking at is not a simple photograph but a composite image or a stack. Any of you who have tried this technique know that it isn't an effective method for image making without a cooperative subject. Some individuals will sit still, some will not, and those are the breaks.
There is stagecraft involved: a rock, a leaf, a plant, or other natural setting is placed into a portable studio box or light cube. I have used models from FotoDiox in the past and Godox now but they are usually illuminated with LED and have reflective side walls for bounced lighting on all opposite sides. I do not place the lighting overhead but flip the box for lighting from one side or the other. Light illuminates, shadow defines - this is a principle in photography. Lighting from the side allows for shadow to really work with the details of each image slice in the stack. Another principle taking place is that the lighting is large and close to the subject. This gives the light a quality of softness rather than the hard light that would come from a smaller light source farther away.
This is the way I have been making images of moths since 2018. Always trying new ideas, always looking for ways to refine it. Many, many times it doesn't work. I've had a lot of heartbreaks (especially in Peru). But I'm not trying to get a base hit, I'm swinging for the fences. I want to make the best image that I'm capable of. You can't hit a home run every time.
I'm happy to share what I've learned with any who are interested.
