Some entomologists are disappointed by my focus on photography, rather than on the natural science of the insects (although I am truly interested in both). I try for the best possible photograph, and sometimes that makes the insect hard to identify. With hover flies like this identification is not an issue. Their odd nose reminds me of Droopy the Dog.
