Clearwing Hummingbird Moth
I saw one of these this morning, drinking from my pansies. My initial reaction was 'Is that a hummingbird (about the right size)?" And then I noticed the antennae.... 'GROSS! Is that a giant bee? I need to get rid of those pansies!" You never know in Texas. Things are BIGGER in Texas you know... At any rate, I googled it and figured out it's a harmless moth. Looking like a bee keeps the preditors away..
