Black with white markings. Almost wasp or bee like in appearance except the antennae make me believe it is a type of hover fly.
Rural SW Pennsylvania
Thanks, Livan. This one was really bothering me.
Beautiful fly, funny that Susan mentioned Hornet, as this is a mimic of Dolichovespula maculata, the Bald-faced Hornet. see here:http://bugguide.net/node/view/2890
It could be a Hornet.
