Bumblebee Moth

The Bumblebee Moth (Hemaris diffinis), also named the Snowberry Clearwing, is a bumblebee mimic.  These diurnal moths are variable in appearance and are often more banded than the individual feeding on azaleas in Erika's garden. They also sip nectar from a wide variety of other flowers, usually in open habitat like fields and gardens. Bumblebee Moths are found across much of North America.
