It's a Hummingbird Clearwing. It's a strange but interesting looking insect. Until recently, I didn't know there is a moth that behaves like a hummingbird. They are called Hummingbird Clearwing Moths. They look a little like a bumblebee but fly and sip nectar like a hummingbird.
Doesn't this little guy remind you of a Viking with a horned helmet and long hair? I love the contrast and contradictions, and the symmetry in this photograph, don't you?
Have fabulous summer weekend,
