    1. Hi BRC and Pensioner – the hoverfly looks a lot like a wasp, pollinates like a bee, and hovers like a helicopter. Very wonderful little critter to have in the garden.


        1. Hi Pensioner – I’m a live and let live kind of gardener when it comes to all bugs except the Red Lily Beetle. I hand picked and killed those ones because they are a European import that has no natural enemies here!


  1. oh what fun jokes. Your photo is beautiful. It makes me homesick for Spring to hurry up and get here.
    Wishing you and your husband a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year! 🙂


    1. Thanks Jo – I was very surprised to find a number of bee jokes on the internet, and even more surprised by a hover fly joke!


    1. Thanks Marcie – I didn’t get my macro lens until late in the summer, so I’m looking forward to next spring to see what I other kinds of bugs I can take photos of!


    1. Happy New Year to you too, Barb! I think I’ll have to post more sunny orange flower pictures to replace the lack of actual sunshine!
