Size: est. 9mm
My apology for the terrible photos. On wild strawberry flower. I had no idea what this was when photographing it but now suspect it's a syrphid and Baccha elongata would seem the only one that fits (using Ontario Syrphid guide). Thanks for any help with this one.

Baccha elongata looks good.

 
Thanks, Ron!
The B. elongata map at BG looks interesting now - only in California and New Brunswick!

 
That represents a single, very busy fly! LOL.
