whole head in flower

First time I've seen this. Saw it at dusk on my 4 O'clock flowers. One had it's whole head in the bloom, so they are very small. Has the beak of a hummer but coloring of a moth. Flies and hovers like a hummer. Location, middle Georgia

Hi Janice! Your photos are very good. It is definitely a moth. You can clearly see its antennae in your first photo and its segmented body in your second photo. Hummers have neither antennae nor segments.
