Bug-a-day #3 – Marmalade hoverfly

Ah, the poor, misunderstood Marmalade Hoverfly!

Forever being mistaken for a Wasp – swatted away by picnickers, screamed at by jammy-mouthed juveniles, and cursed by many a mistaken rambler. But, unlike the miserable, treacherous, sociopathic Devil’s spawn that is the Wasp – Miss Marmalade wouldn’t hurt anyone, unless of course, you’re an aphid.

  1. SO happy to have found you here online. Love your blog! I’m now following.

    • Wow, I’m flattered!
      Glad I can bring smiles along the way.
      I’m sure you know as well as I do how hard that can be for some of us – but this blogging business has certainly given me new focus.
      Nice to meet you 🙂

    Rather pretty close up!

  3. Lovely shot!

  4. Wow … I can’t believe how sharp these photos are handheld. Really great.

  5. Thanks for sharing its name as I have seen it but not known who she is. I’ve always suspected there’s masquerade somewhere with little missy here 🙂

  6. Pretty, isn’t she?
    I must admit a soft spot for this one.
