Aug2013 439 Hoverflies feeding on poppy
I have a special affection for hoverflies, not only because their young feed on aphids but once they might have saved my life. I was in the garden for a few minutes with my camera and stopped to watch the hoverflies feeding. When I went indoors I found the hall ceiling was rubble on the floor. If I hadn't been watching the hoverflies it could have fallen on my head.
