I noted a portion of its wings had been chewed off - but the butterfly still flew merrily.

Nice capture Raghu! It looks like someones thumb would fit in the area that's gone to me. I see people catching them all the time like that and I just want to yell at them or something.

Quite possible, Don. We have a number of children around here who could have tried to capture the poor thing. Thanks for viewing and your comments. Thanks to Donna and Roger too.

Nice shot of that pretty butterfly Raghu. I see quite a few of them with missing wing parts, maybe they are just old.

I think it is a moth.

Moths have furry abdomens and feelers.

I don't think so. The clubbed antenna, bright colored wings, structure of wings and day-time activity all aretypical featuresof a butterfly. Also,moths have their wings spread out when resting. There are exceptions, but I am sure this is a butterfly. The one you saw above has beautiful orange, black and white designs.
