Hummingbird Moth

Look who I found feeding at some Joe-Pye-Weed.  
Snowberry Clearwing Hummingbird Moth

Latin Name: Hemaris diffinis
Known as a "Hawk-Bee Moth" in the UK, the Hummingbird Moth most common in the United States is the Snowberry Clearwing variety (more info here). They really do hum and buzz just like a tiny humming bird or an oversized bumblebee.
