It's the best shot I have got, but this guy is not easy to catch on a phone camera.

I'm impressed!

It looks to be Hemaris thysbe, Hummingbird Clearwing. You can see the clear wing on the other side of the foliage.

Splendid work JRsBugs, thanks June. I think we can call that identified.

Peter I tip my hat to you.
