yellow fly with black spotted wings
I have a heck of a time photographing these since all flies are people skittish. This photo is
quite pixelated, but you can get the the general idea of how pretty these flies are.  The larvae
i
n the
Lauxaniidae fly family feed on decaying vegetation, according to Bugguide and
the adults visit flowers.  © Carol Davis 7-4-2014
