A recent Celery Farm surprise was the beautiful bunch of Cardinal Flowers growing along the Allendale Brook. In the photo, I noted a bug I do not recognize. Can anyone help?
As most of us suspected, the correct answer was one of the Pyrgotid flies, most likely Pyrgota undata.

Deedee Burnside is the only person who offered a response, so a big shout-out to her. (Thanks, Deedee!)
