These photos are from Friday, on the church grounds. I saw this odd flying insect when we were walking from the church to the classroom building. It is pretty large and was buzzing low to the ground over some fire ant mounds.
Here it is when it 'landed' for a moment. It's really a pretty insect. Does anyone know what kind it is? It's body seemed to be about 1 1/2" to 2" long.
