The Amazing Hummingbird Hawk Moth

This is quite an amazing beast.  It looks like a humminbird.  It acts like a hummingbird.  The only thing is, it isn't.  So, how did this amazing beast come about? Scientists believe it is something called convergent evolution.  This is when two completely different species may evolve very similar physiologies because they inhabit a  near identical ecological niche.  However it got this wat, the Hummingbird Hawk Moth is something else!
