[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Spanish]
New image of this small species of hoverflies that does not surpass 10mm. of length.

Previously I published HERE 2 images of the same ones, even without an exact classification.

In this case, the spring has also arrived for them and the love became present. In spite of my interference to very little distance, the flies did not try escaped, much less to free itself among them.

More information on this family of insects, does click
where I detailed some interesting data.

I hope you like it.

Lovely shot Ricardo. I see that she continues to feed, how rude!

I've tried to look for the ID of this but I have had no luck. I will keep an eye open.

Great capture, good colour and compostion. Well done.

What a moment you captured here. Detailed and sharp. The diagonal created with the yellow flower is a nice touch. Very good.

Ricardo, I love the vivid yellows that fill half the frame & the effect of the multiple curved stamens that make-up your "lovers" bed..Such an exotic romance!! ;-))
