Butterfly moth!  I have seen these a few times over the years and have always wanted to take a pic!  It was in the dark and I couldn't up the shutter enough...

First time I saw one, I really did think it was a 1" hummingbird.

EDIT:  Thanks for pointing that out, Lion Rock...dumb typo in all the excitement.  It is indeed a Clearwing Hummingbird Moth.

Alternatively, also called "hummingbird hawk-moth."
Good photo!
