  1. These small bee like insects were flying around the flower beds in the yard and this one sat long enough for me to snag a pic.

  8. Hoverfly, yes? Very well done...
     
  9. Is that what it is Rich? I just did a Google search and it looks like it's in the family.

    Thanks for comments everyone!

    I've been out almost everyday shooting the different types of critters in the gardens. I'm hoping to get more edited soon.

    wow greta shot... i love the color of that little guy
     
  19. hoverfly? So that's what they are called. About 3/8 inch long right? Do they sting or just mimic bees?

    Nice clean shot!
