Whatâ€™s The Difference between a Moth and a Butterfly?
Most moths are drably colored and are active at night. Butterflies are colorful and almost are active during the day. Another way to distinguish moths and butterflies is to look at their antennas. Butterfly antennas are shaped like a golf club, with a long shaft that has a "club" at the end. Moths have antennas that are either simple filaments, tapering to a point at their ends, or are complicated structures with many cross filaments.
