Speckled-eyed native drone fly

speckled-eyed native drone fly in the apple tree (Nikon D3000)


Thanks for looking.



I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

    1. Google is my friend, Janet. 🙂 My eyes have been well and truly opened since I started blogging and finding all these creatures under my nose. One of our museum sites is reall good with identification but I often check google images using some keywords. I’m not satisfied with generic ‘bees’ now, and have borrowed some books from the library to help identify my locals. Oh, and the fluffy apple is a baby one on the tree. Thanks for stopping by.


Tell me what you're thinking.
