Sunshine’s Macro Monday #39

This insect appears to reflect the green from the plant in a most beautiful way!

Initially I thought this was some kind of a bee. I snapped the photo quickly before he flew away.  However, after some investigating, I believe it is some sort of fly.

Someone told me about this app called iNaturalist that will help you identify plants and animals.  It is quite fascinating, but I’m still learning how it works. So please enjoy my fly photo below 😁
