Dropping a line from the great white north in hopes you can help a bunch of us figure out what this giant moth ( I think anyways) is. It appeared 2 days ago on a bay door of our dealership and has only gone from the wall to the ground. Checking in on it regularly I managed to snap a couple photos. It has since moved on to locations unknown departing on what I believe may have been its maiden flight … Looks very interesting and just curious to what it actually was
Thanks a bunch

Dear Crazy Canuck,
Because of their manner of flight, Sphinx Moths in the family Sphingidae are frequently mistaken for hummingbirds. This is a Pandora Sphinx.
