Taken today in my favorite field. These tiny furry hoverflies are all over the place and if you persist, they will become accustomed to you. I got a lot of blurs, and I wish this were closer, but just the same...

This species is very small. Maybe 1/4 inch long and some have darker chevrons on their backs. Very cute.

I have another species here - much larger (Mr. Pincushion).
