Clearwing Moth

This Clearwing Moth is a Snowberry. I would love to see the Hummingbird Clearwing Moth,
because it has more color than the Snowberry.
The Snowberry was in my flowerbeds for 4 or 5 days.

The one below the wings can't be seen at all,
guess that is where it got it's name.
But against the sidewalk background the wings can be seen.


If you only click on one to enlarge, it needs to be the one below.

Beautiful, Leedra... I don't think I have ever seen one before... WELL--I probably have and have paid no attention... He's quite a beauty for sure.

Thanks for sharing. I love the one where he's looking straight at you....
Hugs,

Glad to see your pictures of the Snowberry Clearwing moth, Leedra! These little guys are really hard to photograph! I try so hard to stop their wings but it's nearly impossible. You did a good job with it!

Wonderful series! We do get the hummingbird moth here and it is more colorful, but with your lovely zinnias you've got beautiful color in the background. Very nice photos.

Wow, I love your last shot, so pretty! I remember seeing a clearwing moth when I was a kid and it kinda freaked me out, I had no idea what it was :)
