Flower Fly

Flower Fly?
I found this fly on a cassia in my yard this evening. The closest thing I found in the archives was a flower fly.
Thanks again Tad Swackhammer

Hi Tad,
Your are correct.  This is a Syrphid Fly or Flower Fly.  The species is Palpada vinetorum and is is well represented on BugGuide.  Since our new site migration, we have been spending our free time trying to organize our archives a bit.  We started with beetles, the biggest chunk of posts, and we are trying to sub-categorize.  At some point, we will get to the flies as well.
