Wasplike fly - Pyrgotella chagnoni - Female
Great Barrington, Berkshire County, Massachusetts, USA
June 12, 2008
Size: 15 mm

Might be Pyrgotella chagnoni
in the guide here, but you'll have to wait for a diptera specialist for confirmation. Lovely image - lovely creature.

 
It is.
This specimen is a female, to go with the male the Balabans directed you to:-) Great find, very nice image.

 
Thanks!
I've never seen anything like it.
