Some insects from Post Falls, Idaho

While visiting my son and his family in Post Falls yesterday, my granddaughter and I found a few interesting insects.

There were plenty of honey bees (Apis mellifora), and at least two species of bumble bees, but I was only able to get a decent picture of one. It looks to me like a Hunt's bumble bee (Bombus huntii), but I'd like a confirmation on that. Unfortunately, I didn't recognize the plants that the bees were visiting, and I didn't think to take pictures and post them on iNaturalist. Next time I'll try that!

We also saw and photographed a European paper wasp (Polistes dominula) and a small fly, which looks to me like it might be a robber fly (Asilidae), but I'll wait to see if anyone IDs it for me.
