Photographer's Comments
Not sure what kind of insect this is. Saw this particular insect while looking for some bugs in my office compound. Photo has been cropped, did some sharpening of image, increased the contrast and increased the saturation as well. Comments on how to improve this photo, composition wise or post processing is highly appreciated.

Is it some sort of moth?

bro, look like your focus was at the stick. Not at that bug. I think better crop a bit because with this compo. Viewer eyes tend to look at the stick.

Rupert,
not sure what insect this is, looks like a moth though

Shamsul,
Yeah, I think so too.. kinda hard to focus on the insect as it was very very very tiny... Thanks for tips though...

Looks like the kind insect that loves bananas. Although the stem is a bit more prominent due to its size and colour, but I think once you get pass the stem, the bug does surprise you somewhat when looking at the photo. Haha. It's amazing how still it looks though. Despite you saying it was hard to focus on it, I think you did a pretty good job cos like you said, it's extremely tiny and yet you still managed to capture quite a bit of detail of the bug itself.
