Conopid fly Sicus ferrugineus tracking bumble bees on my front lawn. They parasitise the bees by laying an egg on them in mid flight.

An excellent set.

Terrific images!
The shots the masters of macro get are amazing.
I agree with Harold, I want to see the in-flight egg laying.

Thanks for the comments Harold and Dave- appreciated.

Don't think I'm quite fast enough for the bee interception shot

These are awesome. Never heard or seen one of these flies, but definitely a great subject.

Thanks for the comments- they are instantly recognisable as a very ugly looking fly.

Pretty stocky looking for an aerial insect!
Nice set, Brian.

When I've seen these, I always thought them to be some sort of bee. Good set Brian!
