Hummingbird moth

The lilacs attract a hummingbird moth. I think this one is called a "clearwing."

I love these masters of imitation. There were several out and about last evening. I wish I could have captured a better image of the critter, but without killing it and or more investment in time and energy than was available, this is what I could get. Neat eh?
