A Hummingbird Clearwing Moth

Wow!!  Wow, I mean WOW!!!!

I'd never seen anything like this before…

Is it a moth, or a bee, it flies & acts like a hummingbird but doesn't have feathers… its visiting my flowers like a bee… it kinda looks like a moth, but then again it doesn't…

So I took a half dozen pics, you're seeing the best of my pics here… I did some research and I found out its a "Hummingbird Clearwing Moth", follow the link if you'd like more specific info.  From what I read mine is a big guy… he was about 1.25" long, with a wingspan of around 2.5".

Wow… I mean WOW!!
