Clear Winged Hummingbird Moth

For the last few summers I have been growing phlox. While doing yard work, I noticed this little interesting thing hovering around and feeding on the phlox. It looked like a hummingbird, but the wings were clear. After researching, I found that it was a clear winged hummingbird moth. I hope to see it back again next summer.
