a most amazing butterfly......or moth.....

I thought butterfly till I saw it up close.....then I was not so sure. I had just sprayed the flowers with water and it was really enjoying the nectar and water I guess......If you look closely....I swear it was staring back at me.......and you can see all the detail in the antennae......and the body on the topside resembled a BAT..with legs and wings outstretched......so fascinating!
