A Clearwing Hummingbird Moth

I haden't seen these moths yet this spring until I spied this one shown above feeding on out lilac blossoms. Tiny isn't it? At first I had thought it was a bumblebee! This moth that is looking like a minature hummingbird was so busy and small its a delight ans wonder to observe. This photo was tasken from my living room window! WOW!Isn't nature so amazing!
Hopefully I will find more butterflies today. I am hoping for s swallowtail butterfly and I should be sighting skippers soono.
