Tomato Hornworm Moth

I discovered 5 of these moths in a friends garden just after dusk.  I was sure glad I had my camera.  After searching on the internet, I found out they are Tomato Hornworm Moths.  When I cropped and enlarged the photos, I was amazed at the long tongue they have that enables them to get the nectar from the flowers.
Click on the photo for a larger size so you can see the tongue. The last one is the best.
