A hoverfly on a flower. At first I thought it was a bee because it looks like it. Such a beautiful looking insect.

Whilst I have been recovering from having my wisdom teeth removed I decided to have a play with the slow motion setting on my phone. Here is a Syrphus sp filmed in the back garden yesterday.

Hoverflies, sometimes called flower flies, or syrphid flies, make up the insect family Syrphidae. About 6,000 species and 200 genera are in the family. As their common name suggests, they are often seen hovering or nectaring at flowers; the adults of many species feed mainly on nectar and pollen, while the larvae are insectivores and prey on aphids, thrips, and other plant-sucking insects. Aphids alone cause tens of millions of dollars of damage to crops worldwide every year; because of this, aphid-eating hoverflies are being recognized as important natural enemies of pests, and potential agents for use in biological control. #HoverFly #HoverFlies #Fly #Flies #Insects #Bugs #ILoveBugs #ILoveInsects Sunflower #Sunflowers #IdahoFlowers #Flower #Flowers #FlowerPhotography #SunflowerPhotography #YellowFlower #YellowFlowers #Idaho #NorthIdaho #ILoveIdaho #CoeurDAlene #CoeurDAleneIdaho #HaydenIdaho #Flora #Floral #NaturePhotography #Nature #OutdoorPhotography #Photography

Pollinators. Hover fly. Hoverflies are important pollinators of flowering plants, and love to eat Aphids. A great insect to have around. #hoverfly #pollinator

Last of the Autumn anemones with visiting hoverfly: Eupeodes corollae. This hoverfly is abundant in U.K. gardens and is very useful for the gardener and farmer because it’s an excellent pollinator and the larvae eat aphids! 🌿 #anemone #pinkanemone #autumn #autumnflowers #Eupeodescorollae #eupeodes #corollae #hoverfly #hoverfly #natureza #natures #naturegram #naturephotography #naturelover #naturelovers #ig_naturelover_gr #ig_naturegreece #ig_greece #ig_spain #ig_japan #ig_finland #ig_countryside #ig_italia #ig_mexico #ig_wales #ig_corfu

I'm not sure what this fella is, I think it's in the hover fly family, I do know the flower is a Spanish Needle, a wildflower found all over florida. Once the flowers goes to seed they leave behind these little needles that cling to your clothing and you have to pick them off my hand :). But I don't mind, if it gets me outside and communing with nature I'm game...you practically have to drag me home:)..Have a wonderful Sunday friends!! . .

Walking past this Cherry Ballarat, I noticed it was abuzz with Hoverflies, flies and native bees. I’ve never noticed their tiny, delicate flowers, but they must be super enticing with how many pollinators were in the tree #cherryballart #ballart #exocarposcupressiformis #exocarpos #australiannativeplants #australiannativeflowers #flower #pollination #hoverfly #melangyna #diptera #macrophotography #macro #nature

I thought this was a bee or wasp of some kind. The iNaturalist Seek app says it is a Transverse-banded Flower Fly. #stratfordct #stratford #rooseveltforest #ctopenspace #ctwildlife #wildlife #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #insect #fly #hoverfly #transversebandedflowerfly #pollinator

@sensoryecology

Still lots of our biggest hoverfly species about. These are the hornet and pellucid hoverflies. The hornet hoverfly is at first glance an impressive mimic and very large. Like all hoverflies it’s completely harmless to predators though! It was quite uncommon until the 1940s, but since then has been increasingly common, especially in the south. β€’ The pellucid hoverfly is also one of our biggest flies and sometimes called the large pied hoverfly due to it’s coloration. Apparently, under the right lighting you can see through the body of the abdomen where the ivory stripe is. β€’ In both species the female lays her eggs in the nests of social bees and wasps, where the hoverfly larvae may eat their young and other nest resources. Both species have been really common this summer around here.

Hoverflies may look like bees/wasps, but they're just harmless flies trying to look tough. To help determine if you're dealing with a friendly hoverfly or a potentially sting-y hymenopteran, remember that hoverflies are hairless, their wings are oriented outward from their body, and they fly silently and often hover in a single spot. Picture provided is a margined calligrapher (thanks iNaturalist) that I photographed in late June. - - - #hoverfly #marginedcalligrapher #calligrapherfly #toxomerus #toxomerusmarginatus #lookalike #notabee #notawasp #syrphidae #diptera #fly #insect #insects #insectsofinstagram #insectagram #mimicry #insectmimicry

Check out how this Thick-legged Hover Fly (Syritta pipiens) maneuvers in the air as it hovers a bit - *IN SLOW MOTION, they actually move incredibly FAST* - as it comes in for a landing on a Potentilla cultivar (Dasiphora fruticosa cv.) in Merivale Gardens, a neighbourhood nestled within Pinhey Forest. Taken in Ottawa, ON on 20 September 2019. #thickleggedhoverfly #syrittapipiens #syrphidae #syrphids #syrphid #flowerfly #flowerflies #hoverfly #hoverflies #insects #entomology #fieldnaturalist #inaturalist #merivalegardens #pinheyforest #nccgreenbelt #myottawa #ottawa #ontario #anishinaabeaki #allourrelations
