Hoverfly enjoying a Sunny Day

January 18, 2020

 

After several cool, gray days and a gully-washer of a rainstorm yesterday, the sunshine was sheer delight today.

 

While checking out the backyard and patio, I heard the distinctive humming of a bumble bee.

I looked up toward the neighbor's ivy vines, and sure enough, there was a large yellow-faced bumble bee resting on a leaf. It was the first I've seen in several months.

 

Of course, I wanted to take a photo of the bumble bee, and ran indoors to get my camera.

 

Alas, the great bumble bee was no longer there.

Instead a hover fly appeared, very interested in a group of ivy buds.

Must be very tasty buds.
