Moth or Butterfly?



Butterfly-1
May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.
~Irish Blessing

I can’t tell.  I’ll pretend it’s a butterfly.  I don’t think there are “moth” blessings.

Great blessing. I would call it a butterfly too. The only moths I've seen are one color.

RoseBelle said...

Looks to be a butterfly to me. I think moths are singe color but I may be wrong.

I'm with you! To me, a dandelion is not a weed, it's a beautiful yellow blossom . :)

Abby said...

I would call it a butterfly too!

Hmm.. I think it's too beautiful to be a moth, but I need my son. haha. Happy WW! Thanks for linking up!

Natasha said...

That is an amazing picture. I think it looks like a moth too but I have never seen one that pretty before-great capture!

Best wishes,
Natasha.

Oh I love that pic! Flutterbys are a favorite with me!

Serline said...

Resting with wings open, short feathery antennae, colour less bright... Pretty sure it's a moth. Most people think moths are the butterfly's ugly step sisters, but there are some gorgeous looking moths out there too!

Natures Beauty at it best wonders how all the colors just lands so perfect

Maureen said...

Beautiful shot! I totally love it. A moth or a butterfly...still beautiful! :D

blueviolet said...

It's very pretty and I've never even seen a moth that isn't that boring white color.

Run DMT said...

I think it's a moth, but you're right. There aren't many moth blessings. lol Great photo!

Help! Mama Remote... said...

I agree. I've never seen a moth that pretty

Dina @ 4 Lettre Words said...

Beautiful either way!

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

I think it is a moth. I read my daughter a Fancy Nancy book last night that said butterfly land with wings up and moths with wings down. Pretty either way.

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

I'd say it's a butterfly - I think it's way too pretty to be an ordinary moth! :)

If I Could Escape . . . said...

It's beautiful whatever it is! Happy WW!

Serendipity is Sweet said...

Love the blessing! And what a great photo. I think it must be a moth though. They rest with their wings open and butterflies rest with their wings together.

We just found a Luna Moth caterpillar in our back yard two weeks ago. She cocooned and we're anxiously awaiting her debut as a moth. They can have a wing span of 4-5". Very cool :)

Have a great day!

JennyMac said...

If that is a moth, it is a fancy one. Love the butterfly blessing.

mooneyequalsmc2 said...

We have some amazing moths around here. They can come in so many lovely colors. I think that they call them "millers" around here though. Either way, this is a gorgeous photo!

The Sharp's said...

What a beautiful picture!

Kelly Tirman said...

LOL - I honestly can't tell the difference between your moth and a butterfly. They all represent transformation in my book!

Brenda said...

It does look more like a moth, but its a beautiful one!

Cascia said...

That is a beautiful shot, but it looks like a moth to me.

HeartsMakeFamilies said...

I'd say its a butterfly. What an awesome shot!

Dawn K. said...

I'd like to say its a butterfly but it does remind me of a moth. It's lovely to look at regardless! Happy WW!

That's the beauty of nature it can be what you want it to be! Enjoy your wednesday

Great post! I don't think people think of moths as nicely as butteflies. Isn't that mean, especially if they are as pretty as this one.

I have to make comment about your last post - I love Roti, but I also love Thai. Maybe I should sneak into Tasha's suitcase to try out those restaraunts.

Thanks for coming to visit us at 3 sisters, your comments are always lovely. Isn't it amazing that 3 sisters have mostly had boys.

I like all things winged, especially butterflies, thanks for the posting the blessing too, I always enjoy that one!

I'm guessing moth, but it is beautiful!! We caught something that looked like this the other day. The kids were so excited.

Organic Motherhood with Cool Whip said...

And by caught, I mean caught a glance. Not dismembered it with our grubby little toddler fingers. Cuz that's what happens sometimes, when I am not fast enough to stop them.
