Lol, I'm not sure if you're comparing bee flies to fictitious creatures such as
dragons at oceans' end, or something like ligers.

(This just in: ligers are real, but the males are apparently sterile.)

Anyway, bee flies are really cool. Much more well-behaved than common
houseflies... In fact, you can catch one if you're patient enough. They tend to
hover back and forth in the air, and if you are calm and match their movements
by waving your at the same pace they are wavering, you might just get one to
land on your fingertip. Not sure what the point of doing it is, but it's a neat
thing to do :D
