. . . surely it must be a hummingbird?
I was new to gardening and was amazed by these hummingbirds as they danced from flower to flower. They hover themselves in front of a flower while they unfurled their long tongues to sip nectar...just like a hummingbird. Why they even make a "hum"...just like a hummingbird. But why do they have antennae? Alas, I was soon to find out it was not a hummingbird at all, but a Clearwing Hummingbird Moth, a gardener's pollinating friend.
