What’s this bug?
Hi,
I’m in the uk, so I don’t know if you can help, but I saw this amusing fly (?) yesterday, and wonder what it is? It has a very long nose, which was a bit yellow with pollen.. but its wings and eyes looked like a flies’. Thank you for looking!

Hi Kate,
Your fly is a Bee Fly, most probably Bombylius major which is the most commonly seen of the dozen species of Bee Flies found in the UK.
