Seen feeding on tall tumble mustard before it landed briefly on sagebrush. I don't know if this can be taken down to species from this photo even though I know we don't have too many species in the province. Help, as always, is greatly appreciated!

Moved from Syrphid Flies.

Spilomyia citima
Spilomyia citima ..... female

This seems to be the most commonly recorded species on bugguide for BC, so that makes sense. I would like to find more of these and get a little closer to a cooperative one!
