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.
