Can you name this Fly? If so, please leave a comment below.
Sunday, the weather was kind for once, yet my back and my neck were hammering down too much, and so I had to stay home unfortunately. Instead, I stuffed myself with fresh fruit with my large fruit salad with I make every Sunday.
I hoped the wind would stay similarly nice the next day, and although the wind was still quite full on to photograph Wild Flowers, I headed off. A few showers had passed and I hoped the dark clouds would look kind on me! As if!
This Knapweed had just opened, the fresh pollen has an attraaction to me as well as to these Insects. The pollen stands out and sparkles really, very hard to capture in photos though.
Althuogh the photos of the Fly weren't that hard in the strengthening wind, this Bee was a bit late, and as you can see, keeping flower and Insect in the same frame was getting harder and more difficult.
So my apologies for quality. What did catch my eye though,was all the white on this Bee. White bands around the abdomen, I do see regularly, but not a Bee with white thorax as well as a white abdomen!. Any ideasto the specie?? Let me know, please! See the comment box underneath this post.
