Clearwing hummingbird moth

Hemaris thysbe


This moth has beautiful clear wings with dark banding around them and flies in ways similar to hummingbirds as they feed from plants. Their bodies are furry in appearance and can be yellowish or greenish transitioning into dark brown.


West central ga. Just found out their host plants are: Honeysuckle (Lonicera), Snowberry (Symphoricarpos), Hawthorns (Crataegus), Cherries and Plums (Prunus).


We have SO many of these sphinx-family moths flying around our garden this year.
