A snowberry clearwing moth looks for nectar to feed on in a crimson clover patch off Mississippi 27. The snowberry clearwing adult moth mimics the bumblebee in appearance and actions. The wings of the moth are transparent with dark brown to light brownish orange borders. (The Vicksburg Post/MELANIE DUNCAN)
