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.  © Carol Davis, 8-3-2012

Bee Flies in the tribe Villini are endparisitoids, that is, the larvae eat their way out of their host, ultimately
killing it. You must admit, flies are interesting, if not weird.

I liked this fly because of its fuzzy, striped coat. Maybe a referee? Heaven knows referees
can be weird and a little fuzzy.
