Spanish-moon-moth

When people tell me they think moths are gross and creepy but are perfectly alright with butterflies, I’m just like… what?

like, are we looking at the same bug here?

This

Fucking

Amazing


Also, I really don’t think you’ve seen a butterfly up close before. Like, they’re really cool too, but moths are cute as fuck and butterflies are kinda creepy up close

Butterfly = 

Moth = 

There’s also just a lot of really cool facts about moths and butterflies, that make them both ten times cooler. 

This is Elena’s Madama, Madama Isabellae.

 After talking with tdino a bit about Spain and all the shit going on from the 1300-1500s (reconquista, spanish inquisition, civil war, etc), we briefly talked about Queen Isabella. Queen Isabella and her husband, King Ferdinand, led the final leg of the Reconquista and sponsored Columbus’ voyage to the New World. (led to the deaths of lots of innocent people)(souls for the Madama?

I know this isn't a question, but thanks so much for answering mine. That story is really cool and Thank you so much for sharing. Now if you don't mind me asking another question what's your favorite kind of moth if you had to pick one?

My favorite moth is the Spanish moon moth!
