Climber on the climbing Clematis

with 7 comments

On a Clematis drummondii plant near the one shown in yesterday’s picture I noticed a tiny dark fly, perhaps a quarter of an inch long, on one strand. It held its position for some time, so I was able to take pictures from different angles. Click for more detail.

    • Thank you. I’m sorry that Clematis drummondii doesn’t climb up to Canada so you can see it.

    • And thanks all around. As many times as I’ve photographed Clematis drummondii, I can’t recall seeing many insects on one, so I’m grateful for this tiny fly.
