Hover flies

Daliah with hover flies. Another form of pollinator. They are so similar looking to bees with yellow and black stripes although they are quite a bit smaller. They really do hover almost like humming birds.

I like these daliahs, I like the simplicity and bright colours and because they are not double flowers the insects can get at the pollen easily.
