A find in my yard

Saw this in my front yard.
I'm surprised the pictures came out as well as they did
because the thing wouldn't sit still.
I don't know what it is!

It's Friday!
Enjoy it.
Happyone
Edit:  Kerri identified this for me as a Hummingbird Moth.  No wonder why it wouldn't sit still. : )
Thanks Kerri!

  7. An amazing critter. It looks like it has a black leather belt around its middle.
