Hummingbird Clearwing

Hemaris thysbe


Small, fast-moving diurnal moths that mimic hummingbirds with their movements and appearance. Their wingspan is about two inches across.


This is a spotting from last year! I saw one earlier this year but was unable to get a photo. They are very difficult to photograph due to how quickly they pass from flower to flower.
