Something landed on security camera and covered up the lens. I sure jumped and then realized it was a bug.. I tried to get a clear picture, but the security camera is black and so is the bug. When my husband pushed it with his finger, it flew off fast and was gone before we could get a good look. Best photos I could get are attached.

Tiger Bee Fly

Dear Mary,
We wish you had sent an image of what the security camera “saw” that made you jump.  There is still enough detail in your image to tell that this is a harmless Tiger Bee Fly.  According to BugGuide:  “wing pattern distinctive.”
