[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I captured this moth on the Baiyun Hill, Guangzhou. You can see the moth's wings are half open. I stayed with it for quite a while shooting a number of pics, and the moth walked about on the leaves with its wings half open all the time. You know a butterfly never behave this way. So from the antennae, we can tell the difference from a butterfly and a moth, and I think we can also distinguish them from the way they hold their wings when walking. This moth is as large as a medium sized butterfly. As I'm a butterfly fan, I'm not familiar with moths, so I don't know its name. Thanks for viewing and comments...
