Happy Birthday America!
To everyone celebrating today, have fun, be safe, and save a cold one for me. Oh and whatever you do, don't overcook the steaks!
Bombyliidae (Bee Fly).
This is the first time I've seen them in my garden--Yeah!
Bee Flies are a large group within the Dipteran order, some being
important pollinators. Most Bee Flies can be seen on or hovering around flowers.
Adults mainly feed on nectar and pollen. Many look like bumblebees with a long humming
bird like proboscis.

|This is a real bumblebee in the genus, Bombus. :)|

the dummy was questing upside down!
