What is the difference between a moth and a butterfly?
Moths and butterflies sure do look alike, and they both belong to the same insect family (Lepidoptera) but there are a few differences to look for so that you can tell them apart:
* Butterflies usually rest with their wings closed, while moths rest with their wings open.
* Butterflies have long, thin antenna, while moths have shorter feathery antennas.
* Butterflies generally gather food during the day while moths are seen more at nighttime.
* Most moths make a silky cocoon, while butterflies usually make a shiny chrysalis
