Hi everyone,

Being entomologically minded, I asked Justin for some photos of the mystery
bug. Turned out it really is a fly. A hover fly to be exact. These flies are
flower visiting flies and called hover because they can hover in place. I
have posted two photos on the wiki:


A cloudy day in Berkeley with some lovely geophytes in bloom: Griffinia
espiritensis, Moraea tripetalla, Moraea aristata, Tropaeolum hookarianum,
Tropaeolum tricolor, Allium hyalinum, Lachenalia aloides var. quadricolor,
and Tecophilaea cyanocrocus var. violacea. Exciting!
