Your letter to the bugman:  Hi, when this bug landed on my bag I was intrigued. Growing up here I have never seen one like it and google image search is not giving me any results. Just curious about it if you have the time. Thanks!

Bee-Like Robber Fly

Dear Loni,
We believe we have correctly identified this impressive, predatory Robber Fly as
Laphria columbica, one of the Bee-Like Robber Flies based on BugGuide images.

Wow!! That was so fast!! Thank you so much!! This was Washington state by the way. I realized I forgot that part in my original email
Thank you so much!
