Mexican Cactus Fly

Dear Linda,
We love your in flight image of a Mexican Cactus Fly, one of the Hover Flies in the family Syrphidae.  Despite its name, the Mexican Cactus Fly is a native species.  The Mexican Cactus Fly is one of the larger Flies we have seen in our Mount Washington, Los Angeles neighborhood.
