Snowberry Moth

Snowberry Moth

Two varieties of Clearwing Moths visit our gardens: the Hummingbird Moth and the Snowberry Moth. The version will show the Hummingbird. Moth posted earlier in another image. Look for their differences in their colors. They have basically the same habits and are often mistakenly mis identified!

We are seeing both on occasion, mostly the Snowberry moths now.....

Fantastic Jenn certainly not easy to capture, if the wings are moving I think it would be much more difficult to ID this insect...John
