Mystery Sphinx Moth?

Good morning!
I found this moth in my freshly picked beans. It flutters its wings much like a hummingbird type moth – the wings never stopped all the time I had him. He was found 11/10/11 in Middle GA in the vegetable garden and fortunately announced his presence and didn’t inadvertently become a photo in the Carnage section of the site…

Mournful Sphinx

Hi Dixie Gardener,
This little Sphinx is a Mournful Sphinx,
Enyo lugubris, and you may read more about it on the Sphingidae of the Americas website.

Thank you so much Daniel! What a cool moth – we have such a variety here. But I wish they ate cucumber beetles…
