Flourishing fly by Vahlenkamp

Flowers flies or hover flies as they are also called, is a species-rich family with over 6,000 known species. These insects have many different rich colors and patterns. Many mimic bees and wasps, which gives them protection against, inter alia, birds.
This here found itself at home in the afternoon sun on a sunflower. A flower that they obviously like very much. No wonder, since it for the fly, is as big as a supermarket is for us.
It got virtually the entire store for itself. Well, it was not alone for long. Eventually some fellow species came visiting.
