Marmalade Fly

This is a shot of Britain,s most common hover Fly. It resembles the common wasp, but has no sting, it will not attack. One strange fact is the Hover Fly,s larvae has a vile taste to protect it from predators.


  1. Oh wow -- it does look like a wasp. Great shot!

  2. I never tire of viewing your work. This time I really like the color of the capture and position of the bee, you must have much patience for this type of photography!.

    A greeting from Spain

  3. I like the colours
