The cherry laurels at work are blooming and I don’t think I’ve ever seen quite as many pollinators on a single shrub before! It’s crazy! We unfortunately have a ton of wind whipping across the prairie nearly all the time, so getting good photos of those pollinators is next to impossible with any of my cameras. I keep trying though! So far, this hover fly is the best I’ve managed:
Aren’t hover flies beautiful? Between their fascinating flight behaviors and their coloration I think they are worthy of a lot of admiration. Do you appreciate hover flies? I certainly do!
Here’s hoping I’ll manage to get a shot of the really amazing fly that I keep seeing. Really want to figure out what that bad boy is…
