Surprisingly (for me) I saw this butterfly in the Pyrenees. I had never seen a butterfly like this one before. The ones that I have seen in these mountains are usually smaller, simplier...
I saw this moth a few weeks ago and now featured in the blog. Congratulations! It is an awesome moth!
Congratulations Anna, this stunning moth is being featured in the Project Noah blog today!http://blog.projectnoah.org/
Beautiful moth; could you please add the scientific name? Project Noah has a database which "sorts" organisms out, but the way it searches is with scientific name, since there are sometimes more than one common name for an organism. Since you have not added the common name it appears unidentified. Thanks, and how lucky of you to see this moth!
Very cool! I love moths!
Lime green or granny apple green is my new favorite color .. can I get this as a tattoo?? :)
thanks for the info on the difference between moths and butterflies, mattsilvia7. I did not know this!
This is beautiful. Reminds me of art glass from the Thirties.
If a Polyphemus moth and Luna moth could cross breed this is what their offspring would look like lol. Beautiful!
It's a moth. One easy way to tell is that moth wings lie flat when they're at rest, and butterflies hold their wings together when at rest.
Really nice! Completely new to me!
Thank you! I hadn't seen any butterfly like this one before though I realize that they are living in their habitat.
