Hummingbird-hawkmoth, very unusual

Not to be confused with a hummingbird, this moth (of Lepidopteras) even has a humming sound when close, plus visits blossoms that true hummingbirds are fond of as well. A very cool creature – by adding plants with tubular type blooms, you  too will get these strange fliers in your  landscape and gardens.Common here in western Dupage County.
