    It’s impressive you managed to get the shot before the moth flew aways. That is good timing right there.

    I always thought moth and butterfly are the same thing. Guess I was wrong.

    I wasn’t very good at Biology. I can’t quite tell if it’s a moth or a butterfly.

    It does look like a butterfly to me. It’s not easy to tell.

    The clarity is nothing short of incredible. Well executed Thomas.

    The color on it matches the branch. That’s some nice camouflage.

    The colors on it are striking. I can’t tell whether it’s a moth or a butterfly though

    It’s difficult to distinguish between a moth and a butterfly. They look so similar.

    I think it’s a moth. A butterfly would be more colorful.

    This looks so much like the butterfly but I will believe it’s no butterfly. It looks more of a moth

    It’s quite hard to tell the difference between a moth and a butterfly, as they are so related. But this looks more of a moth.

    This is clearly a moth. The abdomen says it all. This moth looks so beautiful.

    Am hearing of moth for the very first time. It doesn’t look like a butterfly though.

    This is definitely a beautiful butterfly. It may be in its early stages of development.

    A butterfly is more colorful than this, so this will definitely be a moth though it also has a bright nice color.

    Taking a close look at the head, its definitely a moth. A butterfly doesn’t have a chubby head like that. Lovely picture

    It sure looks like a moth from that angle. It’s unusually “chubby” like moths are when in comparison to butterflies. Also, I think the thick feathery antennae is a dead give away.

    I could not tell if it is a mother or a butterfly, because I do not like butterflies very much, especially when they enter the house.

    This kindnof insect is a moth. It has a thick winged insect compared to common butterflies who only has a pair of thin wings.

    If this is a moth, then that’s one fine looking moth! It could totally contend with a butterfly’s beauty, which is rare. Awesome close up shot.

    That’s a moth. I think it’s rare. I haven’t seen one.

    I could tell that it is really a moth, but I haven’t seen that one in person. It looks amazing.

    Well, I can be sure that this is a moth. By looking at its large size and butterflies are usually slimmer, more beautiful and colorful.

    I’m not sure, but I know that butterflies usually rest with closed wings, while moths rest with open wings. So most likely this is a moth.

    My guess is MOTH??? For one I think this is too huge to be a butterfly. Unless the angle of the shot is wrong but still I pick moth. Butterflies are colorful and not as edgy as this thing seems to look.
