Bee Fly   (two photos)
Exoprosopa fascipennis


Exoprosopa fascipennis
While walking around looking at spiders on Antelope island, I noticed this beautiful bee fly
landing at my feet and then flying off again just a few feet away. I figured this might be my
chance
to get a photo - and I did. In fact, I got two good ones. © Carol Davis 7-12-2017

Bee flies are bee "wannabes" and come in all kinds of colors and patterns. Most often, they are
mistaken for bees but once you have a few of them ID'd by Bugguide, you become better at
telling the difference. This was a new species for me.  © Carol Davis 7-12-2017
