Picture Perfect: Autumn Wings

Autumn Wings (Photo credit: Bella Q)
I came across this exquisite creature early one morning sometime last week. The wings blended so perfectly into the sunflower, and the sunflower and the moth (or is it a butterfly?) just seemed like such a splendid augury for this coming Fall. 

What do you think? 



Butterfly or moth? 

Picture Perfect is a semi-regular blog feature in which I share my favorite images captured on my camera.  A great number of the images, like the two above,
were taken from my iPhone. You can see more of my iPhone pics over on my Instagram feed. Feel free to follow me on Instagram(@rosebudz) by clicking HERE.

It's definitely a butterfly! And a beautiful one too! I don't know the name of it but we have one almost like it here in Denmark. Nice shot! Butterflies are not the easiest to capture in a photo!

It is gorgeous, but the larger body looks more like a moth to me...

AHHHHHHH! I'm afeard! Beautiful shot but I hate all insect things, even the ones everyone else likes! I feel all creepy-crawly now.

(Also I vote for moth)

Definitely butterfly. I go with Painted Lady, as Lynn said. I did think tortoiseshell, but they have blue at the bottom of their wings, so no.
Beautiful photos. xx

It's a buttoth. Sounds bad, right? haha. I always enjoy seeing our pretty surroundings on Instagram.

What an stunning picture. I love that you can see all of the intricate details of the butterfly. So pretty.
