To Be A Bee Or Not To Be A Bee

This is not a bee!  It resembles a bee or a wasp but it’s a Syrphid Fly, also known as a Hover Fly (Helophilus Fasciatus).IMG-5717-2-4x3-sryphid-fly-wm

It almost had me fooled!

    1. Thank you! From the time that I took this photo until I began to prepare this post I thought I had a bee in that second shot. As I worked on the post it began to dawn on me that this wasn’t a bee. I googled “bee with vertical stripes” and that’s how I found out it was a fly!
