My light-hearted perspective.
Whatever it is ... it is beautiful!
i agree it is still beautiful.
It is a pretty butterfly, I wonder what kind it is?
It is actually a moth. When it lifted it's wings you could tell. It was NOT colourful on the outside and it is furry all over which is a hint that it is a moth and not a butterfly.
Very pretty picture!
So pretty! I love butterflies, even the NOT Monarchs, lol!
No matter the name, it's lovely!
I think it's a moth but still pretty!
It is a moth!
What a pretty whatever-it-is!
SO pretty and such a great shot!
Pretty butterfly. I seen some like it earlier this month, but couldn't get a good close up picture.
I rarely see butterflies here in Iowa, that is pretty.
So pretty!! We have moths... not quite as pretty. :)
I had no idea that moths had such beautiful colors.
Very cool, great photo. I wouldn't have thought it was a moth.
a beautiful picture!
It looks so close to a monarch - do you think it's a mimic? Monarchs taste awful to predators (so I've heard) and wonder if this little guy mimics them to not be eaten! What a great photo.
I absolutely think that is why they have the same colours! And actually it was my son who told me this - but apparently most brightly coloured things are poisonous to birds and other things that may prey on butterflies/bugs. This moth just doesn't want to be eaten!
Wow what an amazing shot! That is one beautiful butterfly
lovely. I love butterflies.
Wow- AMAZING shot!! Love butterflies:)
Love the colors!
What a gorgeous photograph... I love photos of butterflies and pretty moths. I have flowers in my front yard that attract them and as long as the dogs aren't around, I can get some nice photos. I think this one is a Silver Spotted Skipper, but I might be mistaken. I'm just learning about the different kinds. Whatever it is, you took a wonderful shot. =)
Beautiful! But yup, not a monarch. Love the photo
How do you tell the difference?
