I think it is a syrphid fly. Any correction or additional ID will be appreciated.

Soldier Fly
This is a soldier fly, family Stratiomyidae. Often found on flowers.

Much Appreciated
Thanks you. After someone else provides the ID and I go back into the Guide to locate where I made a wrong turn, I always ask myself, "How in the world did I ever miss that?". Thanks again.
