An awesome Photo of a Hoverfly sitting on a beautiful Flower
My Mother did shot this Photo and I think it is an impressive Photo of a Flower with an Insect which is either sucking Food from the Leaves or seeking for Blackflies. I am not sure. However, this is an Insect which is very common here in North Germany in Summer (I bet you can find them not only in Germany, I am not sure) and this Insect if very active from April to August I think.
I guess this Insect is called Schwebefliege (Howerfly). They can fly pretty fast and the transition to stop flying and just hovering looks so lightning-fast. Flying fast and then braking abrupt and going over to hovering at one Spot lightning-fast, is what they are Master in. They are Experts in keeping still at one Spot while hovering. It is pretty interesting to watch them.
Back to the Photo, I just can say it is a lucky hit. I think my Mother made a really great Photo of a Hoverfly sitting on a Flower.
