The strangest hummingbird I've ever seen

05-29-hummingmoth

A couple evenings ago, I was coming in the back door and something flitting around caught my eye.  It was a hummingbird!

But... wait.

That's the strangest "hummingbird" I've ever seen in my whole life.  I was mesmerized by how different it looked, and also how it didn't seem to be scared of me like most other hummingbirds seemed to be.

I ran to get my camera and get a couple shots.  Watching it closely, that's when I realized it wasn't a hummingbird after all - it was a hummingbird MOTH.  Quite possibly one of the more stranger creatures I've ever experienced.

Well, besides my husband.
