This yellow bug was on a peony blossom in my surburban Detroit backyard mid-day earlier this summer. It makes a great photo and I’d sure like to know what it is.

Hi Jeanette,
We identified your insect as a Fruit Fly in the genus
Strauzia based on photos posted to BugGuide.  The patterns on the wings are quite distinctive.

THANK YOU for the identification!!!
This is a way cool web site and a fine service to ID the bug for me!  Those wing patterns are most unique, indeed!
