Hummingbird?

It was fluttering around pretty fast, but he knew how to stop action it. It's handy having a technically minded boyfriend.

edit *does anyone know what this is? it had a fat body but flew super fast, while in place, like a hummingbird. but do hummingbirds have antennae as Susan pointed out??*
