Insects July CP

A short trip to Central Park netted these insects. I spotted these at the south end of the lake where there is a wildflower patch and nature trail. The excellent entomologists at www.bugguide.net helped me identify the Drone Fly. The rest I figured out on my own.

Went to Central Park yesterday. It was hot so I moved slowly. I dusted the small bee-like fly (only 5 mm) with stars, the rest are as photographed.
