While not the most technically strong picture I have ever taken, this fellow did not sit still for very long. At first I thought he was a humming bird when he zipped into my yard, then an odd bee. But the long proboscis probing my "butterfly bush" convinced me otherwise. A look through my trusty Peterson Field Guide to Moths helped me with the ID.
