You really can't see it well, but it is so cute! A very tiny bee on the edge (or flying past?) Florentine Silk. My shutter speed was set at 350 so the wings are totally blurred, but I wasn't expecting a flyby! lol I love it's little legs sticking out behind him...

Give me land, lots of land, under starry skies above. Don't fence me in.

I agree-- a hover fly. One of the good guys! If you look for hover fly larvae videos, you can find some really cool videos of them catching and eating aphids! Smiling
