Bee Fly

Might be mistaken for a large fuzzy mosquito’s because of the long proboscis on some species, but the beak is for sipping nectar, not blood. Most species are covered in long hairs and/or delicate, often silvery scales that wear off rapidly as the insect ages. Many species have ornate dark patterns on the wings. Their hovering flight helps reinforce their resemblance to bees, hence the family’s common name. Larvae are parasitic on the immature stages of immature insects.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.

    Excellent composition/shot! So often the floral component is distracting (though not in a bad way), & takes away from the beastie. Here everything is in balance. Great job, Kimberly.

  • I appreciate that Sheila, thank you for that!
