Thursday, Dylan, Ariana and I went to Lakeland park so the children could ride their bikes and feed the resident geese. We were playing and looking at the plants when suddenly I saw the above insect. I thought to myself, my gosh, that is the longest bee I have ever seen. On closer inspection I realized I was seeing an insect I had only heard of and never seen in person, Hemaris diffinis, a Cloudberry Clearwing Moth, sometimes called a Bumble Bee Moth!

We had fun feeding the geese
