Caption: Hoverfly feeding on apple blossom, high-speed footage. Hoverflies (family: Syrphidae) feed on the nectar and pollen produced by flowers. Nectar is a sugary fluid that is produced by flowers to attract pollinating insects. Insects feeding on the nectar of flowers play an important role in transferring pollen between different flowers, a process called pollination.
