Hi Andy,


To be honest I'm not sure what it is, I assumed because of the dull colour it was a moth.


I took the photo in a tropical butterfly garden near Leeds.

I'm sort of a closet lepidopterist (the branch of entomology concerning butterflies and moths). Usually, in most cases, if they don't have feathered antennae, they're butterflies, and being active in daylight is a dead giveaway). There's one moth that looks more like a butterfly, which is the Atlas moth.
