Help me understand what I saw? Freeville, small, (cigar shaped?), wing fluorescent green (a hair down from that towards chartreuse on the spectrum) black body. Flew fast across a yard into riparian woods. I thought it was some warbler, hummingbird I never learned, but I see nothing in the guides. Is there a large butterfly or moth that could have thrown me? I’m really confused. Thanks.
