    I am going to vote some kind of wasp because of the wing structure. Nice capture!

    I think it's a fly too, but I couldn't find i in my insect book. Just wondered what others thought.

    thanks for looking

    Great shot! The closest thing I could find in my Audubon insect guide is "Progressive Bee Fly", but even it doesn't seem to hve the wing markings this one has. Hmmmm, maybe it a mutant! lol.

    Pretty sure it's a fly. Pretty sure it's a very nice picture! The little pieces of out of focus leaves in front add to the picture. :thumbup:


    btw; if you really want to know what it is, send your pic to this website.
