Elephant hawk moth

Hi, pretty! This creature – which has the unusual distinction of being named after a mammal, a bird and an insect – is one of 1,400 species of hawk moths found across the globe. Hawk moths are the only moths able to hover in front of flowers to feed, like hummingbirds do, and are among the planet's fastest flying insects, reaching speeds of up to 12 mile per hour.
