Nice! This goes well with the Syrphid field guide I have. I'll need to take another stab at identifying more of these eventually.

This is awesome! Thanks for sharing. I'm sure it will help me ID more of these beautiful flies and might even encourage me to get out and look for them more often.

Oh cool! I didn't realize you had expanded to do the rest of the tribes. I unfortunately don't have time to go through any syrphids right now, but good to know for the winter IDs
