Thanks for the book info. I too take a lot of photos of insects, but many times miss the ID since so many look similar. I have written on the drone fly too (located on my Bees and Friends tab), it is one I can identify. I did not ever see them at maggot stage when they had a "tail"! Thanks for the info.

My kids recently made the same mistake while picking raspberries this past weekend. Dozens of "bees" and "wasps" were zipping about the fruit and this temporarily put the picking to a halt. From a distance I shouted "one pair or two pairs of wings? Do they dart backwards or do they lumber". After a closer inspection of the critters, the kids had their answer and the picking continued without incident.
