Unknown to me a very quick hummingbird moth feeding on salvia.

This looks like a Titan Sphinx (Aellopos titan).

Very cool! Thanks for the ID Dale. I had one of those cruising around about a month ago on my lantana. I had a terrible pic, Wildcat's is much better. The white "ring" around the abdomen is very interesting.

Thanks for the ID Dale.

Yakmon thanks but you should see how bad the other dozen pictures were. That moth moves very fast.

I know what you mean. It was just about dark when I saw mine buzzing around and I just couldn't seem to get the right camera settings for a decent pic! Good job.

There have been quite a few in my garden this year. This one is nectaring on Glossy Abelia.
