Hoverflies, sometimes called flower flies or syrphid flies, make up the insect family Syrphidae. As their common name suggests, they are often seen hovering or nectaring at flowers; the adults of many species feed mainly on nectar and pollen, while the larvae (maggots) eat a wide range of foods. In some species, the larvae are saprotrophs, eating decaying plant and animal matter in the soil or in ponds and streams. In other species, the larvae are insectivores and prey on aphids, thrips, and other plant-sucking insects.

I am taking pictures and videos since a long time, just as an amateur and for fun. Since I’m living on a boat year around my equipment has to be small and robust – so no big “bodies” and lenses.
I enjoy sharing what I see and experience.
