Gorgeous photography!  As fast as the wings on those moths move... it's amazing to catch it in such clarity!

Sweet, johnny, that's awesome!  I gotta get me a real camera too!!

That looks suspiciously like a tomato hornworm moth, might want to keep an eye on those veggies!!

That there's a 5-Spotted Hawkmoth (the moth of the tomato hornworm!  tongue).

Bumblebee moths and hummingbird moths have clear wings.

I think that all of these are correct

Or a tobacco hornworm

AKA a sphinx moth I believe, but yes the adult phase of a hornworm.
