Cool shot- I think moth.

I'm going with moth. Great job on your header.

Brian King said...

My vote would be some kind of moth. Beautiful shot! Love your header, too!

Kerri said...

I actually think it's a butterfly ....maybe a type of dusky wing or skipper. Whatever it is - it is a BEAUTY!

I'm going to have to go with butterfly too. Generally butterflies are out during the day and moths at night. Great capture whichever it is. Love the header!

Moths have furry bodies. Butterflies don't. I went to a butterfly exhibition at the Ft. Worth Botanic Garden and that's what I read and saw. Yours looks furry and beautiful. xo Jenny

I'm voting for moth, which can be just as lovely in its own way as a butterfly :)

Moth. Have you ever smelled moth balls?

How pretty and delicate. Don't know if it's moth or butterfly, but I have a whole house full of "millers" that have come in from the cool weather. Nasty things--hate it when they fall in my coffee cup. Provides amusement for Chet though. . .

Lovely little moth and pretty zinnia!

Carletta said...

This is wonderful!
I think it looks like a type of skipper butterfly.

Kathy said...

I vote moth but what do I know!

Liz said...

Whatever it is, it's lovely!
