photographing and learning about wildlife
This is a second series I have done with this stocky bee mimic drone fly. It is a medium sized fly and though buzzes aggressively when caught it is harmless. it captivating eyes are a pleasure to photograph with their black barred lines. It is a common visitor to flat white or yellow headed flows where it assists in pollination.
Common and widespread in Africa and Asia where it visits gardens with before mentioned flowers and the surrounding diverse landscape
