If you look carefully you can see in the bottom picture here that it's tongue is reaching for a taste!! Very cool shot.
Butterflies and Moths are so unique in their own ways aren't they. Moths I have found have a very powdery look to them when you take their pictures and not at time as striking as the Butterfly. But what are the differences other than size and colour? That is the hot question of the day....Other than species what are the true differences I certainly can't tell unless I take a course that tells me. They both do the same things really...they suck nectar from flowers and lay eggs. So for those of you who are smart leave me a comment and tell me what the real difference between a moth and a Butterfly are I would love to know! :)
