First hover fly for this summer
Posted By: old4570, 12-13-2014, 10:56 PM




After sitting in the hot sun for like ever , watching the tomato plants for hover flies ...
I gave up and went and sat in the shade ..
This hover fly flew over to one of the tomato plants , and hollered over to me that it wasn't going anywhere ...
The very kind hover fly modelled for me for half a dozen shots , sitting perfectly still and only when I put on the +4 CF filter did it get nervous and took off when I simply got uncomfortably close to it ..


I like it when insects cut me a break !
