While watering my plants today, I came across a large, white moth hanging from one of my flower baskets.
This is a Lunar Moth, found only in North America. Did you know that moths and butterflies have a lot in common? The main differences are the way their wings fold, their antennae (moth antennae are fuzzy), and the fact that moths tend to be nocturnal. They have so much in common that they are both in the same order of species called the Lepidoptera order. And there are so many more moths than butterflies that moths make up about 94% of the order while butterflies make up only 6%.
