Hummingbird Moth

Sitting out with the boys doing cigars (well, I had a pipe, but... no matter) across the street tonight, and Daryl saw this moth at Kristie's petunia pot. It had a lot of petunias to attend to, so I ran across the street and got the camera and managed one shot before it left.

Never seen one of these before. They're literally as large as a humming bird, and make their living about the same way. This is a White-Lined Sphynx Hummingbird Moth.

Check that tounge out! The thing's twice as long as the moth!
