Diane,

I'm certain what you saw was a Hummingbird Hawkmoth, Macroglossum stellatarum.

We had them in Central New Mexico.

We moved to Central Florida and we find them here as well. This morning as I
was ready to send this e-mail, my husband called me to see one. It is darker
and smaller than the ones we had in New Mexico.

Here are some links:

Hope they help.
