Got 'em all today! YAY ME!!! Way to start the new year off. Sneaky having butterflies in there twice though. (PS. My Uncle is an entomologist so I think that helped.)

I think it was a " hummingbird moth"
Never saw one before, but it was kinda cool. Actually my son noticed it first.
It flies and hovers like a hummingbird. And is kinda big too. Very colorful.
Never seen them by my house ( and im not too far from RI)
