Snowberry Clearwing Hummingbird Moth by 


These little guys are just as fast as a hummingbird and almost as large. They also look similar to bumblebees. It was a bit of a challenge to get a decent photo of one.

I think sometimes that they reflect the inner me, I love to buzz around a food buffet and select the tastiest morsels.

This photo was taken about three miles north of Newport, which is about 30 miles north of Harrisburg.

    Wow! Why do I never see these? Do they only come out in the day, unlike most moths? Great capture, Russ!

    Thanks everyone! I hadn’t seen one before today (not that I recall or maybe realized) until my stepmom pointed out several. She didn’t know what they were either, so I shot as much as possible hoping to get at least one good photo of the buggers. Then a search of the internet….. :-)

    Very cool…. I seen one at mid spring time here in Eastern Ontario… But have not been lucky enough again…. They are fast nice work with this

  • Thank you for your comments. They are so quick that the Canon 40D had trouble focusing – but here’s a tip – focus on the flower and set the camera to burst and shoot, and shoot and shoot… ;-)
