What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

I took a picture of this bug in June 2006, I’ve looked and looked but still can’t find what it could be. I live in NW Indiana, which is also where I seen this. I thought it was beautiful but could you help me?

Hi Jessica,
This is a Golden Backed Snipe Fly, Chrysopilus thoracicus, and we get most of our photos of this species from the midwest in mid June.
