Snowberry Clearwing Hummingbird Moth

Hemaris diffinis

Description:

These little guys fly so fast, they are easily mistaken for a type of large bee. I was surprised that my camera phone managed to get shots of the wings!

Notes:

Added closer pic 05/15/12. With a little patience, these guys let me get right up on them! (I take all my pictures with a camera phone.)
