It seems that almost every time I take a photo of one of these
interesting insects, it's a different species. I just wish there was
someone who could narrow them down. © Carol Davis 10-8-2018

green soldier fly
This one had a fatter abdomen that the others I've seen and
different markings on the thorax, abdomen, and head.
