Most moths are active at night, in contrast to butterflies, which fly only during the day. All but a very few moths suck nectar through their curved proboscis; one primitive group has jaws for eating pollen. Unlike butterflies, moths rest with their wings like a roof over their bodies, flat over their bodies, or flat against a support.
1. Draw a small circle for the head, a smaller circle for the eye, and a larger oval for the thorax.

3. Draw middle and rear leg.
4. Add the abdomen, and the hind wing, showing the vein pattern in the wing.
