Snowberry Clear Wing Hummingbird Moth

IMG_4598I was happy to see a Snowberry Clear Wing Hummingbird Moth feeding on my flowers. It’s quite a rare moth to see in my yard/garden. I tried to get some good photos of it to share, but it didn’t cooperate and most of them are blurry.IMG_4602

I have some photos from the first one of these I saw was in July of 2011. I felt special when it rested on a leaf like it was posing for me. I had shared these on my old enjoyingcreating blog in 2011. I figure it’s been 4 years and it’s okay for me to share them once again.P2070003P2050013P2050014

I hope you all have a special week of smiles.

      I agree, I’m fortunate I was able to get any clear photos. I enjoying watching them flitting about like hummingbirds. It’s really neat. 🙂


  1. I remember the first time I saw one of these on a trumpet vine–crawled right inside the blossom. I thought it was the biggest bee I’d ever seen! LOL How nice of it to hold still for you!

    • lol Patti,
      Truly it would be easy to mistake these for huge bees. The first one I remember seeing is the one in the photos from 2011. I’m glad I took photos of them and looked them up online instead of squishing them, maybe that’s why that one decided to pose for me out of gratitude. lol 🙂
