My Conundrum

Don't want to boor you with nearly the same picture I posted yesterday, but have a look at the eyes on this fellow... Do these look like bee or wasp eyes to you? This looks more like a common house fly with a fancy paint job to me! Got me Buffaloed...


  1. I think this is a beewolf which is actually a wasp. It's prey is the bee.

  2. A "beewolf"? Come on now, you're making that up, right? LOL

    Looks like a sooped up horse fly from this angle!

    Nice photo even if you don't know what it is!

  3. Nope! For real.

    Paul, also I found a pic of a Masonwasp that looks similar. If you Google these two maybe we can find out for sure what it is. Let us know what you think!

  4. OK I think I figured it out... If you have a chance google "Hover Fly" or "Flower Fly" these flys mimic wasps but are perfectly harmless.

  5. That was fun! By the way, enjoyed these nature shots, very well done and interesting.
