[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
With the onset of cold weather in north India, insects are now rarely visible. Today morning was a little warm and I noticed some winged insects on tiny wild flowers in a corner of my school campus. Hoverflies are normally visible here during spring season, so it looks like a false spring season for them.
The image was taken with my Sony compact camera.

Eristalinus is a genus of hoverfly. Most species have very distinctive eye marking in the form of spots or banding, though these features may fade on some preserved specimens. Most are stout flies, and are nimble flyers, even compared to other hoverfly species.

Hello Ram,
Beautiful picture of this hoverfly in excellent sharpness, beautiful clear and natural colors and a perfect composition.

Hello Ram,
as a lover of hoover-flies, I like this picture a lot.
A beautiful fly with nice stripes on the back and a pretty large head.
Well exposed with nice colours and fine details.

Well done, old friend,
