Although this looks like a nasty creature that would sting or bite you, it’s just a harmless moth.
The photo was taken in Ontonagon Co., MI (Upper Peninsula) using a Panasonic FZ50 with a Canon 250D (+4) multi-element close-up lens. No post-processing was done.Family Sesiidae : Subfamily Sesiinae : Synanthedon acerni
