Azure Blue June 23 2015 at 2:36 pm. This was taken in a field that have never cut in years.  Great for butterflies and skippers.

 A Bombylius major-Bee fly just a guess

Raymonde, I suspect this would be some sort of Bee Fly. Others can tell you better than I though. Check out this post:

Also this would better go in 'Beetles and Bugs'. It's very confusing on how to post in these 'Groups' ... there is an explanation in the HELP menu ( see 'Add Group Discussion). Basically, above the white Comment box you used there is a "+ Add a Discussion" ... clicking on that is the best way to start a new topic using these groups. Then one can have all the discussion in one place instead of a never ending 'Comment Wall'. Hope that helps!

I too was at the Caledonia Gorge lookout (Crooked Creek Rd) on April 5th  of last year and I photographed an unusual insect. This is like nothing I've ever seen but at first I thought it was a big bumblebee.

I didn't know where else to post this. If it belongs to another discussion, let me know.

I took another photo at an angle so you could see the sharp-pointed ...? ...whatever that is.

Can someone help me identify this insect?

Thank you!
