Tiger Bee Fly

What: Tiger Bee Fly

Where: Eatontown, New Jersey

When: Summer of 2015

How: Handheld (More info below)

Most people go about their day planning and doing things in an order. But photographers and wildlife enthusiasts just can't miss looking around and finding something new. This Tiger Bee was one such example. We saw it sitting on a railing and I almost passed it before I noticed that I was looking at a fly, that doesn't look like any fly I've seen before. Without disturbing it, I ran to grab my camera, mounted the macro lens and came back and clicked this picture. 

Later the bee was identified as a Tiger Bee Fly. These flies are harmless and do not bite humans, though they look a little aggressive, it's far from the truth.
