Hummingbird Moth

I was enjoying looking at some Prairie Phlox when I saw this fuzzy, colorful creature hovering over the flowers much like a hummingbird.  I was confused about what it was and meant to ask someone.  Then amazingly enough, later that night I was looking in a Martha Stewart magazine and the Hummingbird Moth had been illustrated on the page.  Thanks Martha...

I followed it around for about 5 minutes.  Its colors and wings are incredible and it's about 1.5 inches wide!
