Meet a Bee Fly

I

t’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Superman! No, it’s a bee fly! Say hello to the bee fly – a fly that looks (sort of) like a fuzzy bee. It’s a member of the Bombyliidae family, and although it’s mouth might make it look like a mosquito, this fly is a friendly pollinator. The flowers it was visiting in these images are Profusion Orange Zinnias.
