Hover Fly on Sunflower

Species: Hover Fly | Location: Virginia, United States

This picture started as a shot of the first sunflower of the season. Then I saw the bee - which I learned later is actually not a bee, rather a hover fly.

I love the great outdoors and taking pictures of the beauty that surrounds us. So much to appreciate and so much to learn about the world we live in. Taking pictures helps me do both.
