Bee Fly

A nice bee fly was the most enjoyable find of the weekend, and one (same one?) was buzzing around the flowers of Honesty yesterday, busy enough to ignore me taking dodgy mobile phone pictures. Some flies proved to be either repeats or tricky, so my stock of unidentified flies grows. Hopefully I will find time to resolve at least some of them shortly. I do always forget just how steep the on ramp is when invertebrate activity starts up though!
