Artist's Description

Drone Fly (Eristalis tenax)

Sony A350 Minolta 100mm Macro

Flies can’t sting, but sounding and looking like insects that can, makes birds and other predators avoid them. Indeed, one species, Eristalis tenax, is such a good mimic of the male honey bee that it is known as the drone fly. (Like the honey bee it mimics, this is a European species now widespread in North America.)
