I think I'm a Bushfly

By avacreates
There are people on this site that pretty much know the name of almost every bug on the planet so I'm guessing that some one will know the name of this tiny critter.

Jean Noel seems to have named this little critter - I googled Bush Fly and what I found looked very similar - Thank you Jean Noel Grin

Always grateful for the wonderful responses and votes. Thank you so much Keith for the UA on previous image and the encouragement.

Hoping all is well with everyone where ever you are and if today is not so good - remember tomorrow could be wonderful or at least better.

With Sincere Gratitude

Nice macro shot Ava, good detail and light, if you go to Safari garden insects site, they have sections for all insects with photo's just type in flies, looks like a type of hover fly to me, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

I'd like to thank everyone for taking the time to vote/comment which are wonderfully
Thank you Leon for the insect website name - it was only when Jean Noel gave me a name to research that I realised that I can quite easily research insect names - silly me, you would think I would know this lol, however, Leon you've given me a great site to check out.

Sincere gratitude
