A Curious Fly

Phaonia tuguriorum

The warmer sunshine has been bringing the insects out, and many have set up their favourite sunbathing spots on my Spotted Laurel at the bottom of my garden. But this one was not sunbathing, it was doing something which I had not seen before. Above the Spotted Laurel grows a tall yellow berberis bush which has been blossoming, and now the blossoms are falling. And this little early spring fly called Phaonia tuguriorum appeared to be feeding on them. I guess you got to get your sugar however it comes when you are a fly.
