  1. Butterflies are colourful, but moths have their own fascination and beauty.

  4. This is why you have a trap! ❤ Aren't they fascinating and the twiggy fellow is an absolute delight! I am always amazed at how much there is to wonder about in nature when we get the chance to stop and see what is out there. I've never forgotten the sense of amazement I had when I opened my door one morning to see an Emperor Gum Moth attached to it. She was a purpley-golden colour with beautiful markings and measured easily 15cm across, maybe more – just stunning!

    Always great fun, and for those of you who are amazed at the colours of some of them, thinking that Butterflies are colourful and moths are not, there is a simple explanation.
    The correct answer to the question, What is the difference between a Butterfly and a Moth? is – there isn’t any.
    All that has happened is that a number of families of, mostly diurnal, lepidoptera have been called butterflies. Whilst the other families have been called moths. There are no characteristics that are unique to ‘butterflies’, and none unique to ‘moths’.
    Just look at them and enjoy.

  7. What a good selection of moths. Opening up the trap is one of the greatest pleasures of a summer morning!
