Hummingbird Clearwing (Moth)

Pease International Tradeport, NH view map

This guy got into my shot today while I was shooting bees.

He was in and out in two (three, max) frames. Considering how fast he was going, it is a miracle I got this shot at all.

I have no idea what this is, it looks like a moth, but the wings have holes in them.

{Update: 17 Sep 2008 Thanks to Lloyd & Cindy for identifying this guy!)

"Hi, This looks like a Hummingbird Clearwing (Moth). Cheers, Sandy Spitalnik
