this little coppery fly likes the fleabane. Any ideas? The picture isn't great and can be frassed, but I would like to have an idea as to family, maybe genus?

Dr. Ascher will tell you which one.

After having a direction, I found the Halictids … probably Augochlora pura which are well reported in this guide. If there is no objection, I will frass this fuzzy rendition.
