I am not sure if this is a moth or butterfly. Taken in August
Great POV!

Beautiful . The flower, the butterfly and the capture.

You can tell the difference by the way they hold their wings. Moths lay them flat, butterflies hold them up. He seems to be in the middle of flapping them- so I'd have to check my insect book to compare pictures- but I don't have time right now. No matter what he is, the shot is great!

What a great capture. I love the colors in the black wings and attached to this flower. Rarely see butterflies here and if so it is a blink as they move fast. Lucky you. FAV

Excellent capture. I guess "butterfly,' but I'm not sure.

Hope all is going ok. Getting ready for the holidays here. Its been cold and I have been sick but getting better with the worst cold I think I have ever had. I am grateful for online shopping. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

He looks rather big!
Closest I could find is a Black Swallowtail.

How are you doing? It's been way too long and this post is 2016. I am not posting much but commenting as I do and seeing who I find on here. Hope you had a nice Christmas and have a wonderful new year as well.
