Hummingbird moths take two

It's a wonder that anything grows in my garden at all when I spend my time trying to capture impossible moths on camera instead of planting seeds. But these moths sure are cool. Joe managed to capture the one below, which looks like a giant bumblebee when you see it flying by. It doesn't have the reddish markings of the one above. If not for the hovering, you'd think it's a bee. These are two different species of Hemaris as far as I can tell.
