“The blues of summer,
flowers and bright skies.
Days of warmth and laughter,
and lakefront evening sighs.”
– Ed Lehming
This seems to be season of the hoverfly. They are everywhere I look. Not that’s a bad thing, by any means, they are an interesting insect and quite colourful too. Though, I have yet to photograph one in flight.
I found this pair while photographing a chicory blossom a few days ago. The one seems to be as deep into the flower as it can go, perhaps that’s where the nectar is to be found? It made for an interesting image, since it also gives a nice side view of the other hoverfly.
