Your letter to the bugman:  This was a 1st sighting if this for me, and I believe it to be a Green Soldier Fly based on what I saw on Bugguide.net.  it was a bit longer than a centimeter, and seemed to hang around me for a while, while I was working in a flower yard.

Dear Karin,
This is indeed a Green Soldier Fly, and based on this BugGuide image, we believe it is
Odontomyia cincta.  Your images are awesome.  She is quite the poser.
