double butterfly wings on moth body
My husband captured this one of a kind bug with the camera yesterday 7/14/07 in the South Texas region. It is a cross between a butterfly (it has four regular multi colored wings) and a moth (large body). It does not look like a hummingbird moth, as we have those in our flower gardens in the summer.(attached our photos) We have not seen this new little guy before. Fuzzy yellow body, large yellow head, four multi colored yellow & black wings, similar to a butterfly. What is it? Found NO photo anywhere of this outstanding specimen, or anything even similar~is it a different species of hummingbird moth, or some strange cross breed butterfly moth?
