Hoverflies often look like bees or wasps but are from the Syrphidae family. They are named hoverfly because they often hover near plants that have nectar and pollen, the larvae consume a wide variety of food including decaying plant matter, plant sicking insects and decaying animal matter and they are considered beneficial.

So far I have photographed: Eupeodes americanus, Eupeodes volucris
