Dear Sir or Madam,

I was hoping you could help me ID an apparent insect in my garden or direct me
to someone who might.
I observed (in the Kansas City, MO area) an insect with a hummingbird-like
flight and was feeding on nectar. It was not a hummingbird. Wing tip to top was
approx. 4-5 in. The color horizontal stripes on the back of its wings, from top
to bottom, were white/black/white/and bright orange.
The body was approx. 3 in. long. The back side of the upper body part was solid
white and the remaining 2/3rds had narrow black and white horizontal stripes.
