my first sighting of a bee fly.
the bee fly was feeding on the astrantia major in my garden, which is located by a small lake in a combination farmland/mixed hardwood rural setting
Hi back! Thanks for your kind words. Nursing is a pretty handy "day job" for those of us to like to have fun in our "real" life, isn't it? :)
hey, lisa...happy to meet you! i live between detroit lakes and moorhead, and am now your newest follower. i'm also a former choir member, informal naturalist, and rn...seems we have a lot in common. thanks for the compliment on the bee fly...i was stunned to see one!

Perfect shot. I've never seen one of these in person, I'll keep an eye out now, BTW, I grew up in Pine River, not too far from your google ID.
