Snowberry Clearwing Moth (Hemaris diffinis)

Posted on Aug 23, 2016

Earlier today I enjoyed my second Snowberry Clearwing Moth (Hemaris diffinis) of the summer, and the first in a situation where it was not unbelievably humid with such a high dew point that my camera immediately fogged up when taking it outside until the moth flew away and I was left with no images whatsoever…woo! All is forgiven, weather, so long as you keep up these beautiful conditions. By the way, moth, I like your bee outfit, too!
