I was working on the computer when a syrphid came on the edge of the screen. I was very inattentive by his clowning. ;-)

I wish to make it clear that there is no trucage.

Syrphids are flies (6-13 mm in length) that have abdominal stripes like wasps and bees but possess no stinger. The stripes are a warning coloration that protects them against would-be predators. The many species of syrphid flies are pollinators, second only in importance to bees. They feed on pollen, nectar, and honeydew. They are most easily distinguished from bees by their ability to hover like small helicopters in the air.

Hi Martine.
I liked very much your humorous post here.
Each one of them is very nice, and all toguether make a very curious comic. I have never seen one of this hoverflies inside a house, and less having a good time in a computer screen, but always around flowers.
Well done, my welcome to TN, and congratulations for you 3-1 yesterday.

Hi Martine, your humourous post is very funny. I like it very much. Furthermore, I guess a huge amount of work and waiting went into the production of this post. Great composition and framing. Well done!
Regards, Tim.
