I didn't realize that Sphinx moths were considered Hummingbird moths!!!
Here are 2 old pictures I have of 2 different kinds of Hummingbird Clearwing moths. (Taken by my old camera so the quality is a bit lacking!)

I.m just the opposite, in that my association with the term 'hummingbird moth' is the Sphinx Moth group. I'd not even seen a Clearwing until last month. My 1st impression of the pictured Clearwing was, 'mmmm...big bumble bee'. Snowberry Clearwing from August in a near by state park that practices keeping the wild, wild (well, most of it anyway).Thumb of 2012-09-26/jmorth/aed8c3

I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
