Polka-dotted Wasp Moth
About This Image
One of the most beautiful insects I know. This particular season, my goldenrod was heavy with this species. They are day flying moths - completely harmess, though they mimic a wasp, hence the name.
They are brilliant iridescent in the sun and the red on its back end is bright as a spotlight.
They get used to you soon. I don't know the range - they are here in nw FL.
