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: http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/… Cheers! Nhu 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!
