I agree it has been a great journey trying to figure out this insect! My sister is more educated about bugs and insects, anything that walks, crawls, slithers, flys, etc., and she explained it well to me one day. If you put out your hands in front of you with fingers spread to represent all the bugs in the world, humans only know of such a small amount, your baby fingernail's worth. The rest of your fingers and hands represent all the bugs that are mysteries or haven't even been discovered yet. Extraordinary.

It was big, noisy and fast as all get out. I breathed a little easier when it left. I knew better than to try to swat at it.
probably a hummingbird, thanks for not killing it
