OUTSTANDING!!!! Hurray!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

@dirtdorphins What is the giveaway that this is a fly and not a bee? The eyes, the wings, both? I'm often not sure whether I'm seeing Hover Flies or Honey Bees on my stuff. I assume when I get stung that it was a bee, but I don't really know that some flies don't have the ability to sting as well.

Hi Donald--yes it can be confusing--the give away here is that flies have the little stubby antennae, great big compound fly-eyes, and just a pair of individual wings

fly vs bee

Thanks everyone and especially to my Utah neighbor to the north for teaching us some differences between a bee and a fly......
