Hornet mimic hoverfly
Besides loads of butterflies , especially Painted Ladies, the buddleia is also attracting all kinds of insects I've never seen before. This one looked kind of scary at first glance until I realised that its eyes were like hoverfly eyes. I think it is a hornet mimic hoverfly, clever beasts !
Thanks so much for the kind comments, stars and een faves for yesterday's sunflower bud !
