The insect in the photo has been identified. Aram Langhans, the resident (Semi) Retired Science Teacher on the LUG identified it as a Syrphid Fly (Palpada sp.) and sent a link with photo.  I will update my gallery.

I checked the Buddleia this morning, carrying my Fuji X-T2 and a Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 135/3.5 lens plus an Olympus 40cm closeup converter lens. I got one image that pleased me, but, after examining 1000 online images, I have not identified the winged subject.  Perhaps someone will recognize it.


My keeper percentage using manual focus is disappointing.
