    The little bee returns with evening's gloom,
    To join her comrades in the braided hive... -Tennyson

    Here in VA we have a few moths that come out at dusk. They are called White-lined Sphinx. They have an incredibly long proboscis and move about just like a hummingbird.http://www.birds-n-garden.com/white-...ird_moths.html

    I looked around a little,but without a picture it's a little difficult to really know what you saw...some type of cicada possibly?

    Their caterpillars completely stripped two of my honeysuckles of leaves. I saw females laying eggs and the caterpillars nine spots make them unmistakable.
