HOVER FLY ON FLEABANE

Hover flies or flower flies are valuable insects. The larvae of some species prey on aphids and the adults are pollinators. Until I picked up a camera I wasn’t aware of these attractive little insects. Now I look out for them each summer.

  7. This is an excellent photograph, Belinda. I too only began looking out for the smaller things in life once I began seeing things through my camera lens.
