Hummingbird Moth
Photographer: Michele Thielke
Location: Eau Claire, WI
This is a Hummingbird Moth also called a Sphinx Moth or a Hawk Moth. They come out mainly in the evening. This one was quite calm and let me get some great shots of him feeding off of my Catmint. Notice his long tongue!!
Digital Alterations: 
This photo was cropped and the contrast was adjusted. I used a light vignette, also, to take away some of the brightness from the flash.
