Papillon de nuit

Butterfly of the night.

Pretty moth, especially when its wings are fully open.

night and day

This moth often flies by day, which I was told means it is a papillon de nuit du jour (unless my leg was being pulled at the time ...)!

Ha ha ha ha ha

Still a more pretty descriptive title than moth.

(are we allowed to say pretty, I know its not scientific or academic)

This is a lovely moth - I saw

This is a lovely moth - I saw loads of these in France this year too...also really difficult to photograph as they are so flighty, so well done!

pretty - please!

Hi Sam,
I think you are definitely allowed to say 'pretty'.
Some of the greatest scientists were drawn to the subject because of their admiration for natural beauty.
