Hemaris diffinis - Snowberry Clearwing Moth .Some 'fake' being Bumble Bees
Just a crop of the bigger photo...so its a little grainy....

I have been trying to take a photo of this critter for some time. They will NOT sit/stay. Honestly... chasing them around the flowers with sweat dripping down my face and into my eyes..and glasses... sigh... Anyway... this was the best I could do !! I STILL cant get a closeup view ! I didnt even know what it was and finally got an ID from bugnet.com !

The original photo is in a Note at Top Left

WONDERFUL!!! Look at those fancy "buttfeathers"! :D What an awesome moth!!! SOOOOO COOL, that you got a picture at all is remarkable, and I think this is just great!! Personally, I want a video of you trying to get pictures. I know what you must look like, since I do the same thing, but hey, I would like a great laugh!! :D :D Wow...it may be a crop but this is remarkable. Fun to see the original image too! :)

Amazing moth!!! I have to agree with Janet, both her comment about the "buttfeathers" and the interest in the video, no matter how spicy the language!!! Oh, to be a fly on a tall sunflower with a good quality video camera while you were chasing H. diffinis around... :D
