Rocky Mountain Clearwing Moth
Hemaris thetis

Hemaris thetis
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. © Carol Davis 6-20-2018
