What's that on the mistflower? A wasp?

Nope! Surprise! The experts at told me that it's a species of clearwing moth--Carmenta armasata. This insect reminds me of another one I spotted in our Wildscape in November 2008. That day I spotted what I thought was a wasp. But it turned out to be a Texas wasp moth (Horama panthlon texana). Nature is so COOL!

Thanks for the insect ID. Moths seem to have dozens of disguises. The original Halloween tricksters?
