Found this bee on the same bush that I found the butterfly on today.

Actually, it's a type of moth. I can't remember the name of it off hand. I had seen one of them before, and a friend of mine directed me to a site that was dedicated to that type of moth. I'll try to see if I can find the site.

Okay, it's called a hummingbird moth, or clearwing moth.

Cool, I'm glad you showed me that! They didn't seem to be bothered by me trying to get close enough to them to snap a picture.... I guess them being a type of moth instead of a bee might explain that.
