When you are out with your macrolens and on the lookout for bugs you are always well served by the flowers of the members of the carrotfamily or Umbelliferae. They are always loaded with all kind of flies, bees, hoverflies and all sort of other insects like the sawfly in the first picture.
Als je op stap bent met je macro lens en op zoek bent naar insecten kun je bij schermbloemigen altijd terecht. Je vindt er massa’s vliegen, bijen, zweefvliegen of zoals hier zaagwespen.
I suspect this cranefly landed here by accident as they usually have little interest in flowers.
Looking from a distance these flowers just look a little dirty but when you come closer you find they are covered with little ants.
