52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 22 Nature


Thanks to the warm weather in November and December, we had many days at around mid 70s F. So, I was able to take my routine trail walk under the sun. Hope it’s a good sign of a beautiful spring.


This beautiful butterfly was standing on a Coreopsis for a second, then started making a 360 degree turn slowly on the same flower, which gave me enough time to get the lens ready. It looks like he/she was sunbathing. Both moths and butterflies have to stay under sun in order to generate energy.


From a distance, I thought they were small butterflies. In fact, butterflies tend to fold their wings vertically up over their backs, but moths tend to hold their wings in a tent-like fashion that hides the abdomen.

Thanks to Denzil for letting me know it’s more like a butterfly than a moth!

Happy Tuesday! 🙂

  1. Nice pictures Amy. Do you know what species it is? You say it was a moth, but from the clubbed antennae it looks like a butterfly, but I may be mistaken.

    • I could be wrong, Denzil. I judged it by the size and how it hold its wings. This one and the ones around were much smaller than the photos are showing.
      Thank you for your comment. I made a note on the post. 🙂
