Can you help me identify this beautiful mating pair? I photographed them at my Dad’s lake place in northern MN last weekend. I am assuming some type of Clearwing Moth. But can’t identify the exact type. Can you?
We have problems identifying the individual species in the genus Hemaris as there is so much variation. We believe these to be Hemaris diffinis, the Snowberry Clearwings, AKA Bumblebee Moths. Thanks for sending in an excellent quality image.
