The Wonder of Nature

Han er ikke blant de største ‘flymaskiner’ i verden – bare ca 8 mm lang, men  han kan utføre oppgaver som ingen flyvemaskiner i verden kan gjøre ham etter (med unntak av visse insekter), men blomsterflua kan f.eks. stå dørgende stille på det samme punkt i luften så lenge han vil! Øyenstikkeren kan og kan hende kolibrien, men blant det vi liker å tenke på som ‘avanserte flymaskiner’ – svært få!
He’s not among the largest aeroplanes in the world – only about 8 mm long – , but he ‘s able to perform tasks that no other flying machines can do! (With the exeption of a few other insects),  but the flowerfly may with ease remain poised at the very same postion in the air as long as he wants! A dragonfly or perhaps a hummingbird may do it, but among what we like to think of as advanced ‘flying machines’: None at all!

    A popular child gets many names! 🙂 It’s fun to watch how evolution gradually make it look like wasp or bee in order to scare enemies off? But it has never hurt anyone!

    What a stunning and crisp shot! I’d never heard of a Flowerfly until now. I did some research and the insect is also referred to as a Hoverfly. They are beneficial to gardeners and farmers because they keep the aphid populations low.
