Marmalade hoverfly on artificial flower feeder

Marmalade hoverfly on artificial flower feeder
Got loads of hoverflies in the garden at the moment and not that many feeder flowers. So just for fun I made some artificial feeder flowers from milk bottle tops with some sponge in the middle to stop the bugs drowning themselves and filled them with a sugar/honey mix syrup (2 teaspoons sugar, one teaspoon honey, 50mls water microwaved for 30 secs to dissolve and partially sterilise it). The hoverflies soon got the hang of it as did a few bees. Unfortunately so did some ants on two of the three I made even though they were stuck on the top of 4 foot canes using blue-tac.

These things may look like plants, but the corals are actually colonies of small living creatures. The sponges are actually a simple form of animal which has no stomach, no digestive system and no nervous system, but each cell is capable of digestion.
