The broad-bordered bee hawk-moth (Hemaris fuciformis) is a large, day-flying moth of open woodlands and clearings. It does like a bit like a bumblebee. It has reddish-brown bands across its golden abdomen that can change to black as the hairs wear off. It also has reddish bands on its translucent forewings and long, clubbed antennae. The broad-bordered bee hawk-moth looks similar to the narrow-bordered bee hawk-moth, but, as its name suggests, has a broader dark band on the edge of its forewings. Males and females can live up to a month. Hawk moths, (family Sphingidae), also called sphinx moth or hummingbird moth, are named for their hovering, swift flight patterns.
