A small fly on a Flax flower.
I will be happy to know more about the fly.


I have learned from Maciej Koniuszy and Joe Kellard that it is a Bee-Fly Bombylius major Linnaeus, 1758.
See the posting by Joe Kellard: http://www.treknature.com/gallery/Europe/United_Kingdom/photo107424.htm
for details about bee-flies
Many thanks to both of them.

hi Shahar
magnifique image, c'est vraiment très doux et soyeux. J'adore la couleur, la lumière diffuse et le cadrage décentré.

bien vu


Bombylius but not B. major!!
