It's always fun to find a different fly in my own back
yard, especially one who doesn't mind
having its picture taken. This one was on Common Yarrow.

Bee Flies in the tribe Villini are
endparisitoids, that is, the larvae eat their way out of their
killing it. You must admit, flies are interesting, if not
weird. © Carol Davis,
I liked this fly because of its fuzzy, striped coat.
Maybe a referee? Heaven knows referees
can be weird and a little fuzzy. ©
