http://www.hotroast.com - Is it a baby hummingbird? A cute, fuzzy bug? A flying miniature lobster? SCROLL DOWN FOR THE ANSWER o_O ANSWER: At first glance this cute and busy little critter looks like a baby hummingbird. Look at how he moves! But after further investigation I discovered this bird is a bug impostor! See the antennae and proboscis? He (or she) is a Hummingbird Clearwing Moth (Hemaris Thysbe). Yup, a diurnal moth. Cheeky little bugger!!! And much cuter than a mosquito!

Charted #17 in 1955 This song was one of my favorites but was over shadowed by the Mary Ford version. Columbia never even put the recording on any of their albums so it never made it on a U.S. CD. It was a very hard song to find for many years. In the last several years CD's made in Europe have included this overlooked song that should have been treated better.
