    From my garden, the interesting thing about this fly is
    It is Leucophora. Tribe Hydrophoriini. Subfamily Anthomyiinae. Family Root-Maggot Flies (Anthomyiidae) and puts eggs in the nests of solitary bees

    Thank you very much, that is very kind. I think you should be taking equally good or better soon, just take loads and take most of them. Also editing makes a big difference.
