Insects/Bugs/Bees/Butterflies - Syrphid Fly - Somula decora
Class:Insecta Order:Diptera Family:Syrphidae Genus:Somula


I just managed to get off a few shots of this big, beautiful Syrphid Fly during my first encounter in mid-Spring. Spotted it while watering and had to flee to the house to get my camera and run back to his last known location, shedding anything that would encumber my shot like two teenagers excitedly stripping before skinny dipping. Hope to meet again soon!

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
