UFO #midnighthaiku

Signalling danger
Mysterious visitor
Flying false colours

At over an inch long and pretending to be a vicious hornet, this little guy looks scary, but is nothing more than a harmless, but interesting hoverfly. Masquerading as something far more dangerous, its young can grow in a nest of wasps with impunity and feeds on the debris from the nest. Its false colours and size protect it from predators, but it has no sting in its tail.
