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.
