Bombylius major  Large Bee Fly

Credit: Nightmare Logic

Came across this little guy today. The vertical perch, pointing  upwards, means the Bee-fly is cold and is warming itself up. It can remain like this for a week or longer…

A parasitic pollinator, note the long proboscis for deep flowers.

No tweaks, twiddles or special effects. Just taken with my (not I)phone.
