This is probably my last insect photo this year as the snow came to northern Norway today.
In this picture you can see a hoverfly (not sure about the species) feed on an autumn hawkbit (Leontodon autumnalis var. taraxaci) flower. This flower looks a bit like coltsfoot, but autumn hawkbit flowers, like the name implies, in the autumn.
I’m starting to get a collection of pictures of hoverflies feeding on flowers. Here are a few pictures:
