Since a snowberry clearwing featured in my previous post, I thought it fair to have a hummingbird clearwing (Hemaris thysbe) be the subject of this one.
A hummingbird clearwing is the larger of the two hummingbird-type moth, about half again a large as a snowberry clearwing. And like the snowberry, the hummingbird clearwing is incredibly beautiful.
Following are ten photos of hummingbird clearwings – all seen in my backyard.
And so there you have it: Ten photos of a glorious daytime moth: a hummingbird clearwing.
