Macro Moments Challenge – Week 6 – Hoverfly

Hoverfly – Eristalis tenax

Hoverfly – Eristalis tenax

A member of the Order Diptera, Family Syrphidae. Commonly referred to as Hoverflies, or Flower flies, this, and 1 or 2 others are also called drone flies. As with most hoverflies they are ether a bee or wasp mimic, this one is a bee look alike. I hasten to add that this one or any other species of hoverfly does not sting, or bite.
