Tiger Bee Fly

Dear Tammy,
This is neither a butterfly nor a diurnal moth.  It is a Tiger Bee Fly, a harmless and very distinctive looking Fly.  See BugGuide for a comparison image.

Thank you so much for your time! I asked everyone around here if they knew what this interesting little creature that seems to have Zeus’s face on it’s back.
Best Regards,
