Day 91 - Saturday, march 31

Alyssa and I came home today and saw this strange bug/bird? flying around my flowers.  It looked like it was part bee (because it had bright yellow and black strips on it's rear end) and part hummingbird, only it flew much slower.  We were fascinated by it.  Finally I remember to go get my camera but it was gone by the time I got back...ugh.  So we went in and started googling it.  It turns out it is a "clear winged hummingbird moth".  I had no idea there was such a thing!!  And now am so sad I didn't get a picture!!!
 got these off the internet

Weren't you lucky to see that! I was going to guess at a hawk moth, which I seem to recall is something like that.
