Pyropteron chrysidiformis aka Fiery Clearwing

yeap, it looks weird to be a moth, at first sight I thought it was a bee, but not, it was a moth. so cute, so gorgeous..soo.. :)
it is not a common moth, but Portugal and Spain are the countries from europe ‘'easier’' to find them ;)

É bonita, sim senhor, mas prefiro não tê-la nos meus armários! Oh Ricky, você sabe tudo sobre estes bichanos, tem uma enciclopédia??

great macros. It didn't look like a moth to me at first either... it has the narrowest wings of any moth I've ever seen. Amazing!

Neat images Ricky. I don't think I've ever seen one of those before. Interesting comment from Dan. To me it looks more like the [url=http://www.airplane-pictures.net/image8462.html]English Electric Lightning[/url].
