The easiest to remember: moths typically rest with their wings horizontal and butterflies with their wings vertical. As a photographer, I’ve noticed a few other major differences: moths like shaded, usually ugly places to rest and don’t seem to care if you almost put the camera lens on top of them — butterflies like sunnier spots, beautiful areas to land and prefer that I usually don’t get within a few feet of them and stay as busy as possible thus ensuring that most of my shots are blurry. Enjoy your nature walk. (as always click to enlarge any photo). Peace.
