The fast moving hummingbird moth has a rapid wingbeat up to 70 beats per second enabling it to fly up to 12 mph. It has a long tongue-like proboscis that rolls out of its coiled tube to reach the nectar deep inside flowers. Its tongue is about double the length of the moths body.
~ Farmers Almanac
They are fascinating to watch, and I tried to capture several wing positions for you - not very successfully! :-)
