We've come to the conclusion this is either a hawk moth or hummingbird clearwing. It moves just like a hummingbird darting back and forth, up and down, so I'll go with the later. But scanning some websites, there's lots of variations of this moth, so I don't really know. Down right freaky, is what it is! Check out that proboscis!

It looks like some kind of mutated hairy flying cockroach to me. Do you live near a nuclear power station?

Maybe its a newly discovered species - you should name it the Bon-Bon (although french kids may try to eat it).

Good photo though

this blog is my "live" photo album of sorts. occasionally, i'll throw in some art i've done or some work of my husband's as he's an artist as well. we have a nice yard in a quiet neighborhood with two pugs and a cat, all black. which most of my photos will attest too. ;) i'd love to hear from you, but happy for you to just browse. hope you find something to make you smile. b.
