An unidentified hymenopteran on a black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta).
EDIT: Upon further inspection, it could be a robber fly of some sort. I didn’t get a close enough look at it to tell for sure. The way it held its wings and the body shape suggested the order hymenoptera, but the big eyes and legs concentrated at the front of the body hint at diptera.

I am Ashley, an incredibly introverted environmental enthusiast.
I'm studying to be a marine biologist.
I have a fierce love for all living things, a very broad sense of humor, and I'm likely too passionate for my own good.
Herein you'll find animals (especially creepy-crawlies), nature, science, art, some of my own photography, and occasionally a scattering of personal posts.
I'm an avid reader and music-listener, so suggestions are always welcome (you can check out my last.fm if you're interested).
I source all of my own posts unless it's my content, in which case I tag it "personal."
But that tag is littered with a bunch of other, boring things as well, so peruse with caution.
