    Sure was nice to get a break from the clouds and rain yesterday...made a brief visit to the Arboretum with a Canon FDn 200/4.0 Macro Lens on an NEX-7.

    Beautiful colors! But that's a butterfly, not a moth. I can't identify the species, but butterflies have those club-shaped antennae, whereas moths have feathery blades.
