Gangwon Animals: broad-bordered bee hawk-moth

I know this type of insect as a hummingbird mimic or hummingbird hawk-moth. Of course, there are no hummingbirds in Korea so there is good reason to not associate it with that bird.

And yet it hovers and flies very much like a tiny hummingbird.

Korean name: 북방황나꼬리박각시Wikipedia has details about it  here.
