Macro Moments: Week 22 – Poppy

I didn’t even notice the wasp until I’d downloaded this close-up image of a poppy onto my desk-top:

  1. Nice shot.

    I think you will find the ”wasp” is a harmless hoverfly, in actual fact, maybe, Syrphus ribesii? Very common on Europe.
    Notice the flatish body rather than round and the absence of a sting in the tail.
