Default Flowers with bugs!

I am amazed by the amount of bug traffic the flowers around my house have already this year! I absolutely cannot wait until summer!
If anyone can tell me what the bug on the Dandilion is I would appreciate it.

the "bug" on the dandelion is called a bee fly. looks like and mimics a fuzzy bee but is really a fly.

Thanks djb. I wondered what the 'flying grobbly' was.

Gandalf065, which camera are you using. I am really impressed with the macro.

JanetKP,
I am using a Canon EOS 10D (shooting RAW) with a Sigma EX 105 macro. (see my signature!)
