Soldier Fly
Microchrysa polita

Microchrysa polita
I noticed this shiny, tiny insect on my lilac bush and took its picture. I thought it was probably
a fly but it was too small for me to be sure.  © Carol Davis 6-8-2014

Microchrysa polita in Taylorsville, Utah
The reason I spotted this fly was because it was glowing. They are a beautiful
green and the wings seem to be the biggest part on them.  © Carol Davis 6-8-2014
