Base end of wing

The wings of moths are not nearly as impressive as butterfly wings. They usually lack the bright colors and are generally smaller. Also, the hindwings aren't as firmly joined to the forewings. The most obvious feature of the wings is the easily detached scales which tend to hide the venous structure underneath.

Notice the tufts of "fur" and the thorn like projections at the end of the wing tips.
