More Pretty Flower Flies

These are some more images of flower flies and others that I have taken this spring. Their sizes and colors vary so much that they make for interesting subjects to photograph. Some, like the first one resemble yellowjackets. In fact when I first spotted this one I thought it was a wasp. It flew so quickly that the image quality is very poor, but I decided to share it anyway, simply because it is so pretty, and it is a great example of mimicry. The one on the white daisy-like flower has a visitor with it, a very tiny nymph, believed to be a lacewing nymph.
