Macro Monday - Meadow Butterfly on Lantana

This is a Skipper on a yellow Lantana.  I can't tell which variety of skipper because I am looking at the wings edgewise, but it is one of them.

How do you tell the difference between moths and butterflies? This is certainly a good enough photo for ID but what are the criteria?

I love this shot!! I've gotten a couple butterflies on some sunflowers that grow wild nearby, but not any shots that I'm thrilled with. You're inspiration to keep working on it!!

Brilliant color. And not the everyday butterfly viewpoint. Nice shot!

What a lovely shot. It seems to be a moth lurking over the blooms. Just exquisite.
