Not Only Honey Bees ❀🐝 | 昆虫和花
When I initially saw the insect in these first two photos from a distance, I assumed it was some kind of bee. However, after getting close enough to photograph it, I discovered that it's actually a hover fly. To me, it seems like a cross between a fly and a bee.
The bee in the following three photos appears to be a wild one. Is it a nomad bee, nomada? I'm not 100% sure though... Is there anyone who knows? It looks happily immersed in the pollen feast, and the flower petals are also pollen-laden.
And then, the pesky flies... I know even less about flies than I do about bees. Is this a shitfly, or what? I imagine there are apps for identifying insects as well? Just like the plants apps, which I downloaded a bunch of and used to picture plants on a regular basis.
Finally, I'd like to show you a closeup photo of a cute honey bee that I captured. I know it's a stretch to call it cute, but of the insects in today's post, this one strikes me as the "cutest". You can clearly see the pollen stuffed into its hairy receptacles on rear legs . :) However, because this is a shot I already posted a few years ago, I'm not entering it in this contest. I hope you enjoy all these hairy fellows' closeups! =)
