The immature stages (maggots) of many flower flies prey almost exclusively on aphids. The adult flies, many of which sport brightly coloured, body stripes are also known as hover flies.

These skilled fliers are most commonly seen hovering in the air next to flowers, appearing motionless as they search for a meal of pollen or nectar.
