An Insect for Butterfly Day!

Here's an Insect for this #butterflyday by @whatisnew

Although they may look like small bees or wasps, Hover flies are true flies.

They get their name because they are often seen hovering in the air like a helicopter, then darting a short distance, and then hovering again.

These insects are beneficial. They are valuable in the garden in the fight against aphids.

Hover flies are nearly as effective as ladybugs and lacewings at controlling aphids.

Happy Butterfly/Insect Day!

Buenas noches amiga @melinda010100 deseo que se encuentre bien al igual que su famila, lindas imágenes y el insecto luce muy bonito en esas hermosas flores. Que tenga una linda noche amiga y que mi Dios la proteja.

Gracias, Edgar! ❤️

@melinda010100 I do not think we have hover flys here but sure could use them. In the spring aphids are terrible, I have gotten where I just let them do there thing then the plant grows back.

I have not paid any attention to them until I took these photos and tried to identify what kind of bee it was! I will pay attention next year to see if I see them again.

@melinda010100 maybe I am the same and think they are all bees. I too will pay closer attention to them.

Beautiful honey bee all picture🤗

Thanks! It is funny to see a fly that looks like a bee!

Beautiful pictures, did you capture them yourself?

Thanks! All of the photos I use in my posts are my own, unless I state otherwise.

Fantastic shots! Oh, I love them hover flies, they are always welcomed in my little garden.

Thank you! It seems they are good ones to have around the garden!

Nice Butterfly Day Photography.

I prefer the coloured version, #3 is my fave among these.

Wow, he is a striking bee Melinda. I love how clear your shots are of him.

Thanks! I was quite surprised to find that it wasn't a bee!

Wow! That is the most beautiful fly I have ever seen and it picked a perfect flower to go with its colors. Look at that face! Yay! Gorgeous photos Melinda. Thanks for using #butterflyday tag. : )

I was very surprised to find out that it wasn't a bee!

Great macro shots Melinda! Hover flies are so cute 😍

Thanks! They look like they are dressed up in a costume pretending to be something that they are not! It is a great defense strategy for them.

Nice photos of the little critters! Are they like hummingbird moths in their movements? I don't think I've seen one of those around the gardens here.

... No insects in the gardens today, though!

I must admit that I have only noticed them when they have landed on the flowers like this one. I'm pretty sure that I have always mistaken them for a bee.

It is cold out there today!

What day is "Butterfly Day" please Melinda? Great shots.

Technically it is Thursday, but @whatisnew generously let's us enter all week!

Beautifully captured @melinda010100

Thank you!

WOW...what beautiful colors i have never seen one like that one before 😺

Thanks. I suspect they are often mistaken as a bee!

Very interesting Melinda, I didn't know a regular old fly had a cool looking version! Great photos too.

I'm sure it gets mistaken for a bee most of the time!
