Daphne's Moth

No, not the dreaded Clothes Moth. She found this (pictures below) in the yard last weekend and captured it to take some pictures. We have never seen anything like it before. Anyone have any ideas? The closest thing we have been able to turn up on various insect websites is called a Hawk Sphinx moth. But it rather looks and moves like a hummingbird. The girls took a lot of pictures, then let the moth go.

Speaking of hummingbirds, they were all over my feeder early this morning. I think we may have more than one pair lurking about. They are such fun to watch, but I have not been fast enough with the camera yet, so there are no pics.
