What the heck is that?

I didn't want to post this in the garden pest forum since it's not a pest. A new flying critter in our flowers today. One of Ma Nature's (I like to call her God) neat little creations.

When I first saw it I didn't know whether to call it a hummingbee or a bumblebird. I was going to post a pic, but I found this site instead. Apparently not uncommon but new to me and I've been around for a while.

Interesting creature, might be fast enough to evade cats.

That is possibly one of the coolest things I've ever seen.
