Kings Park – Perth WA – The first hot day of spring meant the insects were out and about. I noticed it supping on the nectar of tiny Verticordia flowers, in a late afternoon patch of sunlight. This one had the wingspan of a B52 bomber.
March Flies can draw blood, as many a bush walker will testify, but they also play an important role in the pollination of native flowers.
