  1. [​IMG] Any ideas the pollen collector on this bug was very long and i have never seen wings move as fast as these. It was 1.5 to 2 inches long
     
  2. Found it hummingbird moth dont think its native to ohio though.
     

  3. It's a big family (Sphingidae) with many Ohio natives. This one is of the genus Hemaris, I think probably the hummingbird clearwing moth (H. thysbe). I believe this species is native.
