Very special looking butterfly-moth there Kaori. I viewed it in large... it's like camel-colored velvet! Will be later for an update on the butterfly-moth dilemma. :)Have a nice evening!
Pretty upbeat way to begin a week.
Kaori,I just noticed I don’t know how to distinguish a butterfly and a moth! If it seems to be furry, I just think it is a moth. Or moths like flames and light, I guess. Your way to distinguish them by observing their wings open or close is very interesting. Oh, now I am in dilemma situation as Montreal mentioned. Thanks a lot for posting such an interesting theme!! Have a great day!
Well, I don't know either but I'd say a moth... Lovely shots, both of them!
Beautiful, don't know much of moths and butterflies. Our Puccini wrote 'Madama Butterfly', not 'Madama Moth', so I think the moth is quite less interesting... (I am obviously joking!)
Ok, I got curious and tried to look it up. I guess that's a moth... maybe, but I am still unsure...Here's a simple write-up of the difference which I found:http://library.thinkquest.org/J002124/moths.htmYou are right about the wings' resting position... what do you think?
or maybe it's a butterfly after all... just one that is not so colourful. Looking at the antenna and wings postion...
I just heard the same thing the other day! I don't know the answer but it seems to make sense! Nicely done!
I don't know the answer, but I like the photos!To answer your question, my Greece photo was not sepia, it was just a badly faded color print from almost 40 years ago!
Well spotted ! Beautiful macro !
Hi everyone! Thanks so much for the comments! I've been kind of busy and haven't been able to reply to the comments...but hoping to have more time for that soon :DSo I guess we're all not really sure if it's a butterfly or moth? It looks like a moth to me, but with the wing-rule it may be a moth-like-butterfly. Hmmm...
Put me in the crowd of know-nothings! I'd say it's a moth, but wouldn't put money on it. Lovely shots, though.
I like your title!
Thank you so much! Love it when you comment! xx
