They seem to be working the poppies today. Most of the other flowers are past their prime now anyway.

All taken with a Z7. For some reason the camera model in the EXIF does not register here. My software is at fault although the data shows in the correct place according to the Mac OS.

Great compositions and color combinations!
Thanks Nick.

Number three is a bumble bee 🐝, the rest are Fruit Flies. Nice captures.
Thanks John. These seem a lot larger than fruit flys, they are around 1/4 inch long and not as chubby as the pictures I found of fruit flys. I don't know flys, you may be right. I think the bumble bee was snoozing (or at least resting) in the poppy. it was closed up and deep, good place to hang out for a while.

Good ones Ron.
Thanks Louie.

Bumble bees do this often after a long days work.

These are so nice. I’ve been trying to photograph bees and it’s not easy!
Thanks Terri.

Nice colours and sharp images. The flies are in the family Syrphidae hover or flower flies.
Thanks Larry. Looked up those flies, size and body shape match. Thanks for the ID. We used to call those hover bees, guess they are flies. Interesting that they pollinate plants same as bees.
