Butterfly Bush Moths

I took these moth shots last week. They feeding all over the butterfly bush that I have in my front yard. I am really fascinated with the proboscises, or tube-like tongue, and how the moth feeds on the flower nectar. I wish I could tell you what kind of moth he is, but I haven't been able to identify him yet. I sent a note into the What's that bug? website hoping that the Bugman can help. I'll keep you updated. I was overwhelmed by the number of moth specifies when I Googled moth identification sites.
