This amazing mimic was the highlight on my field day out at one of the Hell Roaring sites. I had never seen such a fuzzy mimic that looked so bumblebee like. The first give aways are the big fly eyes, bees are more elongated and on the side of their face. Also bees have longer antenna than flies, this flies antenna are little stubs. The wings are so impressive, they look so much like bee wings…so this little creature is a FLY not a bee…natural mimicry at its finest!
