Another Teeny Tiny Flower (or Hover) Fly... 

Despite the dismally cloudy day on August 21st, I walked the length of the McIntosh Run to Roaches Pond (and back) to see what I could find. While butterflies were understandably scarce, I found many flower (or hover) flies, including this lovely female Toxomerus geminatus. To give you a sense of scale, this fly is only about 6 mm long (about 1/4").
