This odd looking bug perched on my Firebush ever so briefly. I kept
waiting for it to close its wings, but it didn't. It turned, and I
leaned in slowly to look closer without scaring it away. Its yellow
halters really stood out, so I decided that it was a fly.
It paused on a red Firebush
flower, but then zoomed away.
My best guess on an ID for this black winged, orange fly is Xanthomelanodes something or other.
