Yesterday I posted a picture of a hoverfly. I initially labeled that photo in my facebook account as “tiny bee.” It was this photo that tipped me off that I was wrong and that what I was photographing was, in fact, not a bee but a fly.
A close crop of the same image.
My kids were quite relieved to learn these tiny insects that are everywhere aren’t a threat. Knowledge always does seem to have a way of relieving fear.
