New Species?

I'm afraid you'll have to click the images to get a better view of these cool buggies.

Chimera #1
The wings of a butterfly
The body of a bee
The probuscus of a hummingbird
(very friendly)

Here is a picture of him/her staring at me.

OK, After some research I have concluded it is a Clearwing Sphinx.

Chimera #2
Mothlike fur
Batlike face and grasping thingies

Update 09-07 - I have concluded that this is a Noctuidae or Owlet Moth, possibly a Wood-Nymph(Eudryas grata)

And here is a pretty green moth
