Moths

Although most people think of moths as plain, dull insects which fly only at night, nothing could be further from the truth. Moths can be every bit as colourful and beautiful as butterflies, and several species fly during the day. However, there are far more species of moths than there are of butterflies, making identifying these insects highly challenging.
