This weekend the garden came alive with Hover-flies, Bees and thousands of other flying creatures. With a massive explosion of Dandelions everywhere this year, bees and Hover-flies like the one below Syrphus Ribesii , one of the commonest Hover-flies we have, are attracted to the bright yellow flowers of the Dandelion.  These small creatures mimic Bees and Wasps and they too fed on nectar.
