Here's another photo of a syrphid taken a couple of years ago. I hadn't bothered to post it previously because I had posted photos of several similar individuals, all of which were IDed as Eupeodes sp.; but now that Ron Hemberger has kindly IDed most of them as Eupeodes volucris, I'm posting this one just to verify that it is also E. volucris.

Moved from Syrphid Flies.

Yep, E. volucris it is, Gary.
You've got quite a collection there! LOL!

Thank you Ron
for verifying the ID.
