Kevin, with flies, you'll get expert attention more quickly if you post to Flies (Diptera). (I'd put syrphids there, but would put the bee fly at Bee Flies.)

 
thanks!
Will do. Thanks, Ron. Been out of the loop for a while with work and everything else...how you doing?

 
Doin' just fine. At least for now, everything works!
