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.
Looks beautiful in the eyes. Its more like a butterfly.
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.
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 think it’s a moth. A beautiful one, indeed!
That is indeed a moth. Its wings are beautiful.
I could tell that it is really a moth, but I haven’t seen that one in person. It looks amazing.
That’s a moth. I think it’s rare. I haven’t seen one.
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.
Oh wow, that’s an impresive shot.. beautiful butterfly, I love it’s dark colors.
This kindnof insect is a moth. It has a thick winged insect compared to common butterflies who only has a pair of thin wings.
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.
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.
Taking a close look at the head, its definitely a moth. A butterfly doesn’t have a chubby head like that. Lovely picture
A butterfly is more colorful than this, so this will definitely be a moth though it also has a bright nice color.
This is definitely a beautiful butterfly. It may be in its early stages of development.
Am hearing of moth for the very first time. It doesn’t look like a butterfly though.
This is clearly a moth. The abdomen says it all. This moth looks so beautiful.
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 looks so much like the butterfly but I will believe it’s no butterfly. It looks more of a moth
I think it’s a moth. A butterfly would be more colorful.
Very nice close up. Your timing was impeccable.
It’s difficult to distinguish between a moth and a butterfly. They look so similar.
That’s a magnificent looking insect. Nature never ceases to amaze.
The colors on it are striking. I can’t tell whether it’s a moth or a butterfly though
The color on it matches the branch. That’s some nice camouflage.
The clarity is nothing short of incredible. Well executed Thomas.
It does look like a butterfly to me. It’s not easy to tell.
I wasn’t very good at Biology. I can’t quite tell if it’s a moth or a butterfly.
I always thought moth and butterfly are the same thing. Guess I was wrong.
It’s impressive you managed to get the shot before the moth flew aways. That is good timing right there.
That is one GORGEOUS moth!
A lot of people claim it’s a moth. There’s much controversy.
Let’s just call it one of God’s amazing creations and leave it at that 😀
