What is this?
Hi there:
I was wandering through the forest and found this. I looked through your photos and did not notice an exact match. I do suspect it is some sort of hummingbird moth. It was about the size of a wild honeybee. There were others in the area much larger and more colourful but too quick to photograph. The picture was taken in Nova Scotia. Thanks for your time. A very interesting website you have.

Hi Tom,
This is a Bee Fly in the genus Bombylius. We are not certain, but we believe it is Bombylius pygmaeus as evidenced by images posted to BugGuide.
