I heard a buzzing sound while photographing for a Butterfly. I tracked the sound and found this beautiful creature. It looked like a fish to me, I was amazed by its colours.
It has green body with multiple colours on the abdominal segments – White, Black, Red and Yellow. Its black tail is spread like fish. Its wings are transparent and beat very fast making the buzzing sound. At first I thought it was a humming bird hawk moth. Later on research I found its name. Its Pellucid Hawk Moth. Also called Coffee clearwing.
Scientific name :Cephonodes hylas
It hovers over the flowers and uses long siphon to suck nectar from flowers.
