An Interpretation Of A Fake

Chrysotoxum cf. Elegans aka Chrysotoxe Hover[b]Bold Textfly[/b]

Some of you might think it could sting me. But guess again? This is not a wasp, it is a hoverfly. it feeds only in flowers, It doesn't go any harm.
So now I ask, should you believe in everything that appears to be?

revenant Very convincing, but surely a little too large and/or plastic to be real?

girafferacing Fabulous close ups Ricky! Sting or no sting I'm not sure I'd have been brave enough to allow it that close to my eye though!
