Have you ever seen a Bee Fly?

This little cutie is classified a Lordotus, a genus of bee flies. Have you ever heard of such a thing?

Well now you have 😊

I discovered him through my camera lens on my morning exploration.

He is so soft and fuzzy looking, I just fell in love with him.

    1. Thank you! We have extra plant growth this summer from the rains, which brings more insects to discover! 😊

    1. Yes! And through my camera lens I think he was even cuter. With all of our monsoon rain we have more plants, and more insects. 😊
