Our resident photographer Fidencio Marbella has captured yet another amazing sight on Wolf Road Prairie in his beautiful action shots of two different species of moths.

First up is the Hummingbird Clearwing Moth (Hemaris thysbe), named so for its common mistaken identification as a hummingbird.

 

Next up are Snowberry Clearwing Moths (Hemaris diffinis), with their gold color and black band.

 

It is always wonderful to see the incredible kind of life inhabiting Wolf Road Prairie. Luckily, avid photographers like Fidencio capture these glimpses into the rare prairie ecosystem for everyone to see!
