Description

These hover flies were everywhere. Out of the three species that I saw this was by far the most prevalent. They were mostly found at rest on vegetation or nectaring on prairie fleabane.

I love drone flies and hover flies. We have mostly Eristalis where I am at, but occasionally we find something really interesting.
