Hummingbird Moth

We saw this beautiful moth, often mistaken for a "baby hummingbird" because of its rapid wingbeat and the way it hovers at flowers while it feeds on nectar, near the Methow River in eastern Washington State. Its melliferous common name is the "Snowberry Clearwing" and it belongs to the Sphinx Moth (Sphingidae) family.
