Topic: Do you love Moths?

I know, Moths are fragile and a bit..................odd to talk about, but I LOVE THEM!

I really, do love them.

And yet, I don't butterfly's.

It is odd, isn't it? yikes tongue

Here is some wikia info I copied from  Google's wikipedia.

Scientific classification
Kingdom:     Animalia
Phylum:     Arthropoda
Class:     Insecta
Order:     Lepidoptera

A moth is an insect closely related to the butterfly. Both are of the order Lepidoptera. The differences between butterflies and moths are more than just taxonomy. Sometimes the names "Rhopalocera" (butterflies) and "Heterocera" (moths) are used to formalize the popular distinction. Many attempts have been made to subdivide the Lepidoptera into groups such as the Microlepidoptera and Macrolepidoptera, Frenatae and Jugatae, or Monotrysia and Ditrysia. Failure of these names to persist in modern classifications is due to the fact none of them represents a pair of "monophyletic groups". The reality is that butterflies are a small group that arose from within the "moths"[citation needed] and there is thus no way to group all of the remaining taxa in a monophyletic group, as it will always exclude that one descendant lineage.

Most species of moth are nocturnal, but there are crepuscular and diurnal species. They can be distinguished from butterflies in several ways.

Re: Do you love Moths?

Re: Do you love Moths?

As a buddhist I feel I should respect and love all living things; however , I don't like the way they can eat clothing and for that reason feel leary of them.

Re: Do you love Moths?

I think they are funky. There are a lot that are lovely to look at.

I would love to get a better camera so I can get some really close up photographs of some.

Re: Do you love Moths?

I love Moths. I think they're beautiful.

I usually just leave them be if they get in my house. If they get too annoying, I'll shoo them out, or catch them and put them outside.
