I was beside the Don river under the Bloor viaduct looking at some dandelions when I spotted an unusual insect . I have never noticed one before. It was a fuzzy flying insect with a long probiscis. It is called a bee fly (Bombylius Major). It is supposed to be common to see them on dandelions in May.
