Although my focussing is not exactly the world's finest, I think you can make out the little scales which hang on moths' wings like roof tiles and give them their colours and patterns. It is the same principle as those amazing 'crowd pictures' laid on by North Koreans at big events, just about the one thing at which that unfortunate country is a world champion.
You can also see that some of the tiles are missing, just as on an old roof. I often get really battered specimens flying in at the end of the season whose scales/tiles have vanished altogether. But they can still get airborne.
