Hummingbird Clearwing

Hemaris thysbe


This moth is so out of the ordinary for me it caught me off guard when I found it. Its wingspan was about two inches and it's blurry partly because it was warming up. For a little while its wings were shaking somewhat violently and the end of its tail fanned out a little bit.


Warm and humid, at about 7:30 or 8:00 in the evening.


Identified by bayucca. Pictures taken with an iPhone 5.
