Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: It was flying around my flowers and tomatoes as I was out with my dogs. It settled on the grass a few minutes later. Weather conditions: approx. 90 degrees, bright sunshine, about 60% humidity. I am a complete amatuer. I just like taking pictures. I noticed it was in the same place about 20 min. later, but gone shortly after that.
