I’ve never taken the time to read a comparison of butterflies and moths. I’d spotted one – the feathery antennae of the moth and the clubs at the end of the butterflies. And your butterfly’s typical, holding its wings erect instead of flat. Always exceptions, of course, but it was fun to see how a few little clues can help in identification.
I’ve never quite understood why they are classified differently, and I see lately that many of the distinctions are quite blurred. They are certainly beautiful creatures though no matter what the classification.
