Definitely family Syrphidae--I can see the spurious vein.

Thanks, believe you're right. Someone on Flickr suggested Eristalis tenax or Drone Fly. Checked pictures on Google & they look spot on.

I love your bug photos! What kind of camera do you use? If you don't mind me asking. Mine is on it's last legs and I'm thinking of getting a new one.

I thought this was a fly at first but now believe it is a Robber Fly. One of the coolest looking ones I've seen. Found today that they eat Tiger Beetles! Oh no NOT Tiger Beetles. I love Tiger Beetles! I think Robber Flies are cool. Too bad one is a predator of the other.

Death not necessary for an ant party. Poor caterpillar was being eaten alive by 100s of tiny ants with fire ants racing toward it.
