Let’s spend some time in this lovely meadow.
Can you see the long tongue (proboscis) of this skipper moth probing the clover flower?
You can’t help but notice the eye spots on the wings. This one has a bit missing from its hind wing that is shaped like a bird beak. Maybe the bird was fooled by the eye spots, which allowed the butterfly to get away.
Don’t forget, National Moth Week starts on Saturday July 23, 2016.
