Description:
This photo was taken in our small patio area behind our house. I was fortunate to catch the wings just as they were changing directions I think. 1/500 is not really fast enough to freeze their beating wings. Hemaris diffinis Family: Sphingidae Subfamily: Macroglossinae Identification: Adults are quite variable in appearance; Bumblebee mimic. The thorax is golden or olive-golden in color, abdomen is black dorsally with 1-2 segments just prior to terminal end being yellow to various extent, while black ventrally. Wings mostly clear with reddish brown terminal borders and dark scaling along veins. Wing Span: 1 1/4 - 2 inches (3.2 - 5 cm). Life History: Adults fly swiftly during the day. Caterpillars pupate in cocoons spun in leaf litter on the ground. Flight: Two broods from March-August. [Butterflyandmoth website]
