I know…its a very common butterfly – so sue me…
…I don’t even know if its a butterfly or a moth…but I love the way the light is shining clear through its wings.

Lovely photo… I love butterflies 🙂
Me too – I have hundreds, but Im sure this is the best one yet
Nice catch. I went into the butterfly rooms at our local wildlife centre. Full of beautiful ones but they did not settle long enough for me to catch….
They are alive??? Flying around? Awesome!
Yes – Pupae hatching in cupboards – jungle like plants, rocks etc, so humid in there. Butterflies were everywhere. All my pictures blurred…..
It is still beautiful and well done on getting such a marvellous photo. Here in Europe we see less and less of these lovely creatures.
I love them, and here in Africa, we still have quite a number flying around and its fairly cold aleady
When I was a child my Dad told me how to tell the difference between a butterfly and a moth – it’s in the antennae. Moths’ are fuzzy or fluffy, butterflies’ smooth with a rounded club on the end.
Also, moths rest with their wings flat while butterflies rest with their wings held vertically.
Now you know 🙂
Thank you. I’ll remember that! I’ve still to post the moth that looks like a wasp!
