This is one of those bugs that is extremely hard to identify because there are about a hundred other variations of this same strange mixture of features. Flies that look like wasps, wasps that look like flies - I don't know what all these guys do but it must be something important because there's so many of them. I am hoping they pick up the slack of the honey bees, since pollinating this year was at an all time low. It would be good to spread that work load around. ;)
It has very large fly like eyes and legs, but a wasp shaped body and what may be a faux stinger for a nose. It wasn't aggressive, nor was it friendly - it's coloration and shape make it look as though it's something you don't want to touch - and I wonder if that is a defensive disguise, some biomimicry action going on? Any (real or wanna be) entomologists out there know what this is?!
