What’s this bug
You have a fun site. Thank you. Here’s one that swarms my arborvitae bushes in the spring. Picture was taken on rose bush. Ridgecrest, 93555, is Upper Desert, 2300 ft elevation, 80 miles east of Bakersfield, CA. Whatsit? Please. Keep it fun.
We believe this is a Hover Fly in the genus Sericomyia, as evidenced by BugGuide. We would like to get Eric Eaton’s opinion on this.
