    That aaaaaaaawwwwwww moment.

    Why aaaaaaaaaw? The hover fly is a regular in the top greenhouse. It's watched me take a few photos without being the subject.

    Great photos as always, Fred.

    Your vft is likely very put out that you stole a meal from it. I do attempt to rescue the small solitary bees or spiders from dews if I happen to catch them in time.

    It had only caught part of the Hover's abdomen so it would have been a waste.

    The trap is fully open today and waiting

    Glad you released the little fella Fred, I find hoverflies fascinating and am always a bit depressed when they end up as a meal.....
