syrphid fly on columbine

This "sweat bee" was actually more attracted to my skin, but because I was so close to the flower, it landed there for a split second -- just long enough for me to get a shot.

The observer's paradox is inescapable. We might as well embrace it! In fact, syrphid flies do feed on nectar and pollen, but whether the columbine is a favored source, I don't know.

That's a beautiful flower, superb against the grey stonework
