I am beginning to think that I have been taking pictures of two different species of Clearwing Moths. Hemaris thysbe (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemaris_thysbe
) Hummingbird Clearwing Moth and Hemaris diffinis (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemaris_diffinis
) also known as Snowberry Clearwing Moth. I think the one on the left is the Hummingbird Clearwing Moth, and the one on the right is the
Snowberry Clearwing Moth. I am going to have to do some more investigating. The images from the walkabout in the Sourland Mountain Preserve this morning were taken with a Nikon D810a camera and 300 mm f/4 lens. A compromise kit that is not too heavy that I can still hand-hold and provides high quality images that I can crop.
