What's a hummingbird moth?
Look, on that flower - it's a hummingbird! It's a butterfly! No, it's a hummingbird moth!
There are two species of hummingbird moths that are found in eastern North America: the snowberry clearwing, Hemaris diffinis, and the hummingbird clearwing, Hemaris thysbe. Attracting them to your garden is easy: plant plenty of flowers to feed the adults, as well as the preferred food sources for the caterpillars, diervilla and coralberry.
