Syphus opinator fly
Found this very unusually-shaped female Syrphid Fly in Wasatch
Mountain State Park in Wasatch County, Utah.   © Carol Davis 6-20-2018

Bee-like syrphid fly
It's odd for me to find a chunky Syrhid Fly with a long pointed abdomen.
I knew immediately I had something different. The University of
Alberta Museums site
has a nice overview on this pretty
little aphid-eating fly.  © Carol Davis 6-20-2018
