Buzzing Around

English Gardens_2016 (42 of 178)

If you’re like me, you probably thought this was a bee or a wasp.
In fact, it only looks like a bee or a wasp, for protection.
A brief research quickly cleared things up.
It is a Hoverfly (also referred to as the flower fly, or the syrphid fly).

The hoverfly and I were both attracted by the same beauty: a rose.
An English Tea Rose I believe.
Love at first sight…
