Dear Bugman,
I photographed these two insects and I need an identification. …  The second photo is of a insect on Mt. Lemmon, Tucson, and it was taken in July of last year. Thank you so much

Bee Fly

Hi again Harrison,
Your second insect is a Bee Fly in the family Bombyliidae, and it is different from most of the Bee Fly images we receive.  We believe it may be in the genus
Geron based on images posted to BugGuide, including one image in particular that was also taken in Arizona.
