Sitting, right outside my backdoor. Enjoying a morning smoke before breakfast. This little guy, decides to walk across the tows of my shoe. Down onto a leaf in the grass. Kind of resembles a bumble bee. Only white and black. Instead of yellow, and the eyes shaped different. Which leads to my curiosity, if it may be a different species possibly.

This is a Rodent Bot Fly in the genus Cuterebra, and members of the genus are often very host specific. Rodent Bot Flies are external parasites on mice, squirrels and rabbits.
