These hoverflies are so fascinating and beautiful. Their beauty doesn’t get hurt from sitting on a poppy flower.
The blue spots in the background are forget-me-not flowers.

  1. What stunning photography! I had no idea Norway was so beautiful! I’m in SC, USA and there are hoverflies around here that look like the same species. We call them Deerflies or Yellowflies. It’s also kinda ironic there’s an ad for Terminix on this page! HA HA!

  2. Groovy shot. I always love it when someone concentrates on something that is rarely deemed beautiful–a fly. It is beautiful once you look at it closely. My wife takes alot of macros and I’ll share this post with her. Cheers.

  3. Cool pictures and I love the flowers and hoverflies. I don’t know how I could take a photo like that because I don’t know much about photography.
