Hummingbird?

I think these are pictures of a hummingbird that was visiting my marigolds in the garden.

They are the cutest bug! We have seen many of them or just one that flits everywhere in one particular location. Fascinating to watch!

Yup, moth we caught one in our garage. I also thought it was a hummingbird at the time.

So glad to know what it is - like others, we thought at first it was a hummingbird but when watched up close we didn't think so.

I've always known them as hummingbird moths. They love impatiens and sedum too. Cute! One stops by almost every day.

Actually they are a Moth, i seem to get them on dry years. What they are is a species of hornworm from what i understand, maybe they ate your tomatoes!

I have one that has been visiting my petunias everyday for a couple of weeks. I thought it was a hummingbird too.
