Photo of the Day - 8/10/2014

Here's an interesting insect.  I believe it is properly a type of sphinx moth.  Some other sources call it a clearwing moth.  The latter is obvious in this photo.  And I love that the wings really ARE clear.  But that's not the only reason I find this moth really interesting.

When I first saw this, I was hoping to shoot some hummingbirds.  And, from the angle seen below, I was fooled for a bit.  And that is why I've also heard this called a hummingbird moth.
