Hoverfly and spiderwort
A tiny hoverfly (syrphid fly) on a spiderwort flower:
Every year I take a look at the Tradescantia (spiderwort) in my yard and find something interesting. The last year or two, the subject has been the yellow anthers against the petal color or the feathery tendrils. This year, it’s syrphid flies – I’ve noticed them attracted to spiderwort before, but there are lots of them. I’ve had other buggy visitors to spiderwort as well. This was done at around 2x or 3x magnification. If you know the flower, you may remember how tiny the anthers are.
