Butterflies Get All the Glory

August 28, 2012

Look at these beautiful moths!



I prefer moths over butterflies. There is a delicate subtle beauty to them, like they belong more in nature than butterflies do... I think I feel that way because their colors are more nature colored and their habits seem more reasonable for nature -- quite unlike butterflies with their daytime gallivanting, irreverently flashing around their unnatural hues!



Moths also beat out butterflies in the cuddle-factor department.  Their modified scales give them a cute furry apperance... just look at them!  They're almost like flying hamsters!  Last I checked, hamsters are generally more cuddly than arthropods (which I love too!  Just not for cuddling.)
