Syrphid Fly

I threw a mix of herb and flower seeds into a raised bed last October…and waited. Boom! They have arrived. Despite the damp weather, there are no aphids about thanks, in part, to the syrphid fly, a small bee-like insect that loves aphids. Don’t know where this fly came from, or if, in fact, it is a syrphid–but it looks like one and there are no aphids.
