baby blue eyes ~ 03/19/09 ~ Fort Ord

baby blue eyes & unknown wasp
Nemophila menziesii
Boraginaceae (formerly Hydrophyllaceae)

Love the black spots in this baby blue-eyes; I've seen many without any spots whatsoever. Also, I'm fairly sure the insect is a Hymenoptera and not a Diptera due to the antennae. I'm guessing the white hind tibia may be an identifying trait. Does anyone know this wasp? His name is George, but I don't know which family he belongs (Thanks, Gary Larson!).
