BzZzZz , A noisy Hoverfly

Eristalis tenax
I don’t like this Hoverfly as much as others. I’ve found this one last night!It was bzzzing so loud! It was close a humid place. Why? Because these Hoverflies put their eggs in humid and dark places! Their eggs when erupt become maggots. Their maggots are called Rat-Tailed maggots. The rat-tailed maggot lives in highly polluted waters where all of the oxygen has been used up.
So It is fluently common see this hoverfly nearby dust, dark and disgusting places!
Although as every hoverfly it doesn’t sting and it feeds of nectar.
Don’t forget to follow mehdi
JustEve if i've found something like that it's for sure i don't took a picture of this but i'll runaway:))) i'm afraid of every flying and creepy and skipping and otherwise moving insects;/
but hey i love your shot, great like usually:)))

Jarvo Neat picture Ricky, but I prefer the other ones too. I like their stipes and their silence.

noptek Very interesting insect
noptek · 2009-08-14: 12:50
xxxxx You little ant, you miserable idiot, who are you, you little bug, to tell the world who Anamaria is . Clean your nose first, learn more about life and get some more education to be able to think and talk as any normal human does .
xxxxx · 2009-08-14: 12:56
onlyricky and you should stop watch porn!
xxxxx isnt a name lol
onlyricky · 2009-08-14: 12:57
bell072 I told you before to quit talking of Ana, and you are still mentioning her name ? Last time I am telling you to shut up your dirty mouth! You understand ????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
bell072 · 2009-08-14: 12:58
GKorts Is there no way to stop this disgusting story, I really want to be free to leave my comments either on Ricky´s, Ana´s or elsewheres blog without getting in danger to get involved in childish discussions like this. Life is too short for that
GKorts · 2009-08-14: 15:25
Ryana A very clear picture! Nice shot!
Ryana · 2009-08-14: 15:25

mverellen its amazing how you take all these photos so close to the bugs.. id be grossed out :D
mverellen · 2009-08-15: 00:03
jjvilm hmm, you KNOW! before I read all the information about your flies and all about that (you told me abuot them once) I always! thought flies bite, but now I'm glad to know they actually don't, and what! a relief! b/ I always thought the big flies like those would go near you and bit you and lay an egg in your skin! THAT CREPPED me out ALL the time. I mean seriously? who wants something living inside them!? (sorry pregnant women) so I always get creeped out by them...ok by any insect! I used to even like grabbing ladybugs..but I thnk someone told me they bite and it hurts, so NOT grabing them aagain, plus! they kinda poop on you. or w/e it is, but I've noticed they excrete some orange liquid on you...NOT sure what it is, but w/e it is Im sure it's some kinda defense mechanism or something, omg! imagine if i had a cut or something there! Im sure it would burn as hell! I have 2 kinds of hover flies photographed i'll post them one for every day, that way I'll never run out of things to take pics of
jjvilm · 2009-08-15: 00:18
