Dandelion and Hoverfly
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|A hoverfly on a dandelion flower.|
The hoverfly is i think, Eupeodes corollae (Fabricius, 1794).
Hoverflies are good photographic subjects as they tend to pose for a few seconds without flying off.
The Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale, Weber, T. Densleonis, Desf; Leontodon taraxacum, Linn.), though not occurring in the Southern Hemisphere, is at home in all parts of the north temperate zone, in pastures, meadows and on waste ground, and is so plentiful that farmers everywhere find it a troublesome weed, for though its flowers are more conspicuous in the earlier months of the summer, it may be found in bloom, and consequently also prolifically dispersing its seeds, almost throughout the year.
Cropped and resized.
