Hola my friends, I just want to show you what I found on the lobby, this funny hairy moth, Im not really sure about the name of this, because there are around 12 thousand to 14 thousand species of lepidopteros in Costa Rica.

By the way to recognize between a butterfly and moth, just take a look on the antenna.

In the moment that I would have the name, I will let you know...for now enjoy the picture.

Moth has an antenna that looks like hairy of feathery antenna or could be a skinny antenna.

Butterfly has skinny antenna and kind of fatty at the end of the antenna tip.

Excelente macro, muy linda e interesante la polilla, te felicito.

Hello Michael!
What a strange and amazing moth species you presented here! I have never seen anything similar to this species. I like details, DOF and POV, only the background cound be more natural that a wall :)
TFS and have a nice evening!
