Dear kk,
We believe we have correctly identified your Douglas Fir Pitch Moth,
Synanthedon novaroensis, from the Clearwing family Sesiidae, another group of wasp mimic moths.  You can see one of the few other images of a live specimen on the Moth Photographers Group website.  For more information, see this online article.
