M for Moths

After scouring the net I have deduced that this cousin of the butterfly is probably the
Two Spotted Herpetogramma Bipunctalis Moth

    Moths and Butterflies both belong to the order LEPTIDOPTERA and hence are first cousins..;)
    If someone can give me a confirmation on the species of this winged wonder or correct this amatuer nature enthusiast if wrong, will  be obliged! :D

Less famous cousin
A little less beautiful
Lives in the shadow

I know squat about moths! But I sure love butterflies!
And now that you have confirmed my knowledge about moths and butterflies being first cousins, I like the former too!! :)
A sweet tribute to these simple winged creatures...
I am not an expert either. The coloring is milder in case of a moth, i feel.

My M is a Murder.

No idea about Moths but your Haiku dedication to them is more interesting.When the weather is cool and drizzling then some stray into my house.

hey Kavita,
I dint know much about moths either only until I clicked this refugee. :)
I love butterflies too and so does my lil son. He called this moth a butterfly and that triggered this post! :))
Thanks for your sweet words of praise!
