Wow, we can clearly see the veins within the wings of the hoverfly! Very nice shot!

I think that their English name perfectly describes their behavior - they can hover in the air over the chosen object like a little living helicopter (chopper). Smile

I guess that you rather meant cicadas or crickets?

I am a bit surprised that no-one has got any imaginative ideas after viewing those unique garden sage flowers.

I could see the head of a snake with a distinctive eye and two tines of its tongue coming out of its mouth.

Nice photos.

I live in a partition like those shoebox homes. Lucky for me, I live by myself. Sad

I think they are exactly those "little watch" or "little clock" ("часики") - if you catch one and put it into the little box (we were using boxes of matches) it has to provide sounds like the clock is ticking Wink If I'm not wrong, of course Wink Too many years have gone Rolling Eyes

Yeah, a good comparison although to me the sage flower resembles more the jaw of the Inostrancevia a carnivorous therapsid that became extinct long time ago. Wink

Quite possible although I haven't heard about this kind of behavior of hoverflies before. Smile

The shot of Physostegia virginiana is very nice, which reminds me of a shot that I took quite some time ago:

Both photos evoke highly positive emotions due to their refined aesthetic features. I like them. Smile
