Moths/Mariposas del noches

Moths are to most, an insect that we do not really like.. they seem to conjure up myths,omens etc. But I do really like what they call them here in spanish. Mariposas del noches Butterflies of the night.. it really does make them sound beautiful.

It seemed quite happy as I was shooting away with my camera but in the end I gently lifted him and put him outside.
