Clearwing moth is often referred to as a hummingbird moth. This one was feeding on a bee balm flower. These moths hover near flowers, much like an avian hummingbird, and then extend their lengthy proboscis into the flower to extract nectar. These moths are active during the day, not night, like many other moths.
