DRONEFLY


The Drone Fly is very common around Otley, this time of year. It is an accomplished honeybee mimic, with brown and orange markings, but is completely harmless. This mimicry helps to protect it from predators while it searches for nectar in our parks and gardens. Interestingly the drone fly not only looks like the honey bee but also mimics the way it flies.
