A Macro of a Syrphid Fly (Hover Fly)

A Syrphid Fly, or often called Hover Flies or Flower Flies, flying over a rhubarb leaf. This insect is very small and it was a bit difficult to get a macro shot.

These flies pose no risk to humans as they do not sting or bite, but their colors mimicking a bee or wasp do well to keep predators and humans away.

Photograph taken in Mounatin Home, Idaho.
