SteemitPhotoChallenge Entry #49 - The fly (Entry 2)

in photography •  2 years ago 

Hi all! This is my second entry for SteemitPhotoChallenge of this week

At first glance, the photo has an insect that looks like a bee. However, upon closer examination and comparison with photos of bees of different species, you can be sure that this is definitely not a bee.

Once, I posted on Steemit a photo with such an insect and @mweich told me that it is not a bee, but a special kind of flies that mimics under bees in order to protect themselves from natural enemies.
