Simple Beauty of Nature

Hover Fly On Grass Weed

I miss summer already even though I also enjoy the colors of autumn. Looking at this little hover fly on the simple grass weed, I wish summer would last longer so I can watch little critters dancing about and flying around.

Beautiful Colors On the Hover Fly's Wings

When the sunlight was on the right direction, this pretty little hover fly shown its colorful wings. I don't know if it has ever stung anyone since I actually saw a stinger, but I love photographing this critter.

Spreading Wings

This hover fly loved all kind of wild flowers, grass weed, including my zinnia, and herb flowers. We are now way in the middle of October, so there are no more critters to see. I can't say that I'm looking forward to winter because it is too gloomy here in Michigan.

The little hover fly captures a rainbow when it has the luck.

The wings are so colourful with this close-up shot. I've never really paid attention to hover flies. Now that I've seen him close-up, he looks rather nice. :-)

Such wonderful pictures. I love the last one with the wings open. So delicate and pretty. I agree winter isn't my favorite season either but I'm sure we'll find something beautiful about it to photograph.

Great shots of this little fly, Icy. It seems that, all too soon, winter is returning. Thank heavens for you Belle Isle Conservatory!!

Our winters are pretty gloomy but they make us appreciate the spring time all the more. :-) His wings have a pretty glow, like opals.
