flying humingbird like insect
Hello Mr. Bugman,
Enjoy your website. I saw this interesting insect several weeks ago and was happy to see it again when I had my camera in hand. At first I thought this insect was a small humming bird, but when I looked at it closer I realized it was an insect. It hovers and moves in a similar manner as a hummingbird. Any ideas about what this insect might be? I have some other closeups if you need them.
Regards,
Douglas Ayres

Hi Douglas,
This is one of the day flying sphinx moths, Family Sphingidae, known collectively as Hummingbird Moths.
