Today we continue our look at flower flies. This flower fly is the “Syrphus species”. It is another one that looks similar to a wasp but is totally harmless, they are only interested in gathering nectar from flowers and in the process they help to pollinate them as well. Flower flies are an interesting group of flies with many different species and some are very hard to identify except by close examination which is impossible to do by just looking at them like this. But some do stand out quite nicely from the rest of the group, like today’s flower fly. Have a great day everyone and God bless!
