Moths, the nocturnal brethren of butterflies, are generally under appreciated and yet many are as striking as their celebrated butterfly siblings. Like butterflies, moths perform necessary pollination tasks and serve as primary fodder for bats, birds, even small mammals.
Historically, due to the skull shaped markings on their backs, the various species of Death's-Head Hawkmoths have been associated with omens of death. In addition, moths and butterflies have also been used by numerous cultures to represent change, inconsistency, or transformation. This association is due to the moth/butterfly life cycle as it transitions from egg, to larva, to pupa, to adult.
Butterflies and moths tend to be linked symbolically with fairies and witches: they all have the ability to fly and to change form. In parts of Scotland, Friesland and Bosnia, moths are regarded as witches. In Serbia and Westphalia, butterflies are regarded as such.
