Pellucid Hawkmoth

Pellucid Hawkmoth

Dear Rana,
This diurnal Hawkmoth in the family Sphingidae is
Cephonodes hylas, and it is commonly called a Pellucid Hawkmoth or a Hummingbird Moth since they fly during the day and their flight pattern resembles that of a hummingbird as they nectar at flowers.  You can read more about them on the Sphingidae of the Eastern Palaearctic website.
