Gorgeous Moth

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!

      I always look forward to all the creatures you photograph, Ricky! Not only do I get to learn something I get to see something beautiful. Well done!
