Sighting Record 1224233

Observation Notes: 
It was feeding on petunia's on back porch. There is a pond in the backyard with a lot of dragonflies and frogs. We saw Snowberry Clearwings on the same petunia's earlier this summer. I saw this guy for the first time today. While feeding he never stopped flying - wings were always moving, therefore difficult to photograph.
