Mountain Clearwing Moth
I chased this moth in Big Cottonwood Canyon until it
landed in the
middle of a bush in a spot not conducive to great
photography. I had no
idea at the time that it was a Clearwing Moth. I
sure wish I could have
gotten a shot of it with its wings spread.
Notice the red on the wings. You
can see more of them in better poses on Bugguide.
