Aphids and syrphid flies
The most predominant insect on our recent desert trip was syrphid flies.
Many of the plants had aphids, and that's what attracted the flies.
For all the zillions of flies I saw, I didn't see too many of the aphid-eating larvae, and the ones I did see didn't sit very still to have their pictures taken.
