Hummingbird Moth Visitor to Home Garden

A member of the Sphinx moth family enjoys a meal of lantana nectar in the garden in Austin, Texas. Seems like this one is in a bee costume to me. Had to use the flash on my point and shoot camera to stop motion as it flitted around from flower to flower pretty much ignoring this fumbling photographer. What interesting insects have you seen in the garden lately?
