p.1 #1 · Suprise hoverfly


Had a suprise visitor yesterday - I think it's Scaeva selenitica (yellow abdomen stripes). Feeding fairly ravenously on sugar/honey drops on the camelia bush.
Had an accident after the flight shot where I managed to catapult it in the air- it did a half somersault and landed upside down in some sugar honey syrup. Feeling rather guilty about this I spend the next 5 mins cleaning the poor thing off with damp and dry tissues until I managed to get it off the wings and it then flew off.

I agree on the last shot. The in flight shot is very cool too.

Great series of highly varied and very interesting poses and compositions. Great saga about the accidental acrobatics into the bait, too!

Thanks for the comments everybody - appreciated.

BTW- slight explanation on the title - it was the species of hoverfly that was a suprise - not very common and certainly not in Winter. I do quite often see other hovers this time of year in the garden as long as the sun is out.

The in-flight is cool, but the last shot rocks.

how in the world did you manage to get one in flight? I was out chasing bee's today and it was hard enough to focus on them while they were still.
