Three Myopa in a stack, dangling from an old Symphyotrichum pilosum stem. I'm guessing the female is hanging on the stem and the two below are males. I was tipped off by another individual, presumably male, flying among the jungle of stems, coming upon this trio and almost latching on.

For ID of host bee larva
Body length: 7.38mm
Bee larva ex. hollow Solidago stem (photo #8), containing 3 larvae and one adult male(?), presumably all of the same parasitoid wasp species floating around the periphery (IDed here). The host bee larva is hollowed out but you can still make out the head capsule, tracheae, and probably other features.

I found this crazy construction buzzing about in a park. They actually flew together through the air like this! Apparently this kind of fly does this "when the pheromones are floating around". Thanks to the fine folks of BugGuide for the explanation!
