Nature: Moth or Butterfly?

“Unexpected intrusions of beauty. This is what life is.” – Saul Bellow

Moth or Butterfly, which is it? What are the differences? Butterflies tend to fly during the day, while moths are more creatures of the night. Butterflies also have slender antennas usually with knobs on the ends. So why am I confused, besides that I couldn’t find it in my trusty Field Guide to Butterflies? Well, butterflies also tend to have more slender bodies, while this one clearly is thick. It was on the lavender during the day. I appears to have butterfly antennas. Stumped by lovely nature again! So butterfly or moth?
