Hummingbird Moth

Thanks to Cindy at Bug Safari for stopping by and cluing me in on the little moth that visited my blooms Saturday evening!  What we thought at first was a hummingbird is a White Lined Spinx moth, also known as a Hummingbird Moth.  How fun is that!! I've Googled it and found a lot of neat pictures including the caterpillar stage that Cindy has featured on her blog.  I knew that Julie over at A Succulent Life would know what it was, and sure enough she knew where to go and who to ask!  Thanks, Julie!!
