Tiny Hoverfly in Blindweed Blossom
I saw a very tiny insect buzzing around a blindweed blossom (they are a small wild morning glory) and when I looked closer, I saw that it was an itty bitty hoverfly, about the size of a grain of rice! I cannot resist a challenge so I tried to get a clear picture to share. I really didn't think I'd get one because when it was in motion, it was crawling all over the flower really fast, and when it stopped, it was on the opposite side of the stamens and I couldn't see it! However, when I looked at my pictures, I discovered that I actually got a clear shot! HOORAY!!!
