|The indian plum had just burst into flower at Oyster Bay.|
|And they had company.|
I didn't see them at first; the two (and a head) flies on these flowers have white wings that look almost like indian plum petals themselves.
|Zooming in on that photo.|
In another couple of photos, mostly out of focus, I could see that the flies have a striped abdomen, and, I think, reddish eyes.
Their friends and families were hanging out on the crabapple blossoms.
|Five crabapple flowers, a dozen flies. That big monster hiding in the background is an ant; these flies are tiny! Three of them are nose down in the center of the first flower, as if drinking from a fountain. (Click to see the photo full size.)|
Back to work: I've got some moss photos to crop and clean (sand on the lens) and a batch of wasp photos still in the camera. I'll catch up one of these days.
