No actually it's not....

Bee-Fly, originally uploaded by photofox78.

Is something I hear quite often when chatting with fellow photographers about macro images, especially those with a bug as the subject.

This shot is a classic example, I was sure it was a Hoverfly of some variety only to find out it's actually a Bee-Fly. To some this might be obvious, but I'm still a complete amateur when it comes to insect identification.

I suppose the more shots I take and the more help from the experts I get, the easier it will get to make my own accurate identifications.
