Big Blue Fly - Cuterebra

Big Blue Fly - Cuterebra
Tenino, Thurston County, Washington, USA
September 27, 2016
A rather large fly - seemingly a carpenter bee mimic, but there are no carpenter bees in my area. These often will land on my or buzz around me when I'm out tending the garden. They also appear to inspect the eaves of my house, although I have never seen them land there. September/October flight season.
