Flying Beauty

This beauty was showing off for me. The outer part of the wings was brown like bark, but the inside was brilliant. Today it's unusually warm so there are a bunch of bugs out to play!
I think insects are fantastic creatures on many levels but being creeped out by them in "person" I really like to see them in photographic close-up. Nice.

I believe this is a butterfly and not a moth. Moths have short feathery antennae. Lovely shot, though.

such a beautiful shot - and looks like the sun was very bright according to that shadow - so well done for not blowing the colours out - loving the detail

Thanks, I wasn't sure. The body looked like a moth and the wings on the outside were brown like tree bark, which also made it look like a moth I changed my title!
