A probable bee

Might be a fly, might be a very small bee; I'm not really equipped to tell.

Starting to label pictures by lens; I'm not going back to re-label all the prior ones, but figured it might be of interest going forward.

It's a Bombyliidae; http://www.samford.edu/schools/artsci/biology/invert04f/pages/25.htm

We've got them here, and I've got a few pictures of them in flight.

Thank you!

I would -- from the apparent teleportation from flower to flower -- suppose that in-flight pictures of these guys would be rather challenging.
