Dutch name : Weidevlekoog


Status : inheems Een zwart, glimmend zweefvliegje met opvallend kromme poten en gespikkelde ogen. Ze zitten veel op bloemen, waar ze actief met fourageren bezig zijn. De relatief kleine vleugels (voor een zweefvlieg) en de kromme pootjes geven de indruk dat het een gewone vlieg is. Ze zijn overal te vinden, maar vooral in wat nattere omgevingen zoals aan slootranden.
Voorkomen: Vrij algemeen

Uiterlijk imago
Kop: Ogen licht grijs-bruin met donkere spikkels.
Borststuk: Borststukrug zwart met lichtbestoven lengtelijntjes
Achterlijf: Achterlijf zwart, met glimmende en doffe delen.

Hello Thijs,

Very nice picture of this syrphid fly, Eristalinus sepulchralis, I think. Good focus on the head. Beautiful detail of the fly and the flower. Superb colours.
Cheers,

Hi Thijs.
Once more ultra close-up picture of a nice scene. Great details and of the flower and hoverfly. Colours are superb too. Only reflections on the fly wings are strong a bit. Have you used flesh diffuser? If I am not mistaken You have it. My best regards and TFS. Nice job.
