Size: 2 cm
Early afternoon, temp in mid-70s, fairly sunny. Behaved like a bee or moth in flight, but furry parts and antenna make me wonder if it's a moth. It was investigating zucchini plants, seemed not interested in the flowers. Seemed to prefer shade under plant. Other pics available.

Thanks for your prompt help, Ross. I was afraid it was something like that. Now we're finding the eggs under the leaves...
