Hover Flies (Family Syrphidae)

Hover flies, named for their habit of hovering above flowers, belong to Order Diptera (the true flies) and are important pollinators. Because they nectar on flowers, they are also known as flower flies. Although many resemble wasps or bees, they are harmless to humans and do not sting.
