Drone Flies are common throughout most of the world. They are one of the largest and diverse group of bugs with over 5,000 species. A Drone Fly has large, stocky bodies and black marble colored eyes. They have two wings, unlike a honeybee, which have four. They can be found in gardens and fields. They seem to mimic honeybees as they have similar food gathering techniques. Drone Flies can be significant pollinators. Here is one from my garden this past summer.
