Looks like it may be a Hummingbird clearwing or Snowberry clearwing moth (http://www.google.com/images?q=Hummingbird+Clearwing+Moth&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=univ&ei=7AY5TM7IM8Kblgez8bnVBw&sa=X&oi=image_result_group&ct=title&resnum=4&ved=0CDMQsAQwAw). We have them (or something very similar) most of the summer feeding on our flowers - I love them! :hail:

My cats would like to eat that! LOL
The day they brought a live cicada in to play with so it would buzz was the greatest day of their lives I think.

It's a CP forum! What's wrong with feeding a moth to a CP?
