hello, I was walking around my farm with my camera and saw this stunning bug, a fly? or what else could it be.. gorgeous
We are relatively certain this is a Hover Fly or Flower Fly in the family Syrphidae, but we haven’t the time at the moment to browse the images on BugGuide to verify that identification and perhaps provide a species name.
thanks so much, i browsed bug guide and didn’t find anything.. I will continue to search around thanks again!
