Taubenschwänzchen or Hummingbird Hawk-moth

Macroglossum stellatarum

Description:

Very small... Has two antenna like feelers on head, looks almost like a large moth. I have never seen a humming bird up close so I'm assuming this is a type of humming bird.

Likely you need to look up Hawksmoth, It acts like a Hummingbird.
