Pink Spotted Hawk Moth

Yes, this little guy is an insect, not a hummingbird. I caught this beauty in my front yard feeding on phlox. It was so busy that it didn't seem to mind that I was so close to it. These moths act similar to hummingbirds in regards to their feeding habits. They feed on deep-throated flowers such as morning glories, hastas and phlox, pollinating on the way.
