Dart of a hoverfly - oh dear, I just see wings (http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schwebfliegen). The only thin I can imagine is the part they put the eggs on the plants. But I just saw it in the back. Or was it smashed?

Best wishes
Ralf

Hi Ralf - in English, dart can be a verb, meaning a sudden movement. To dart about / darting here and there. Hope this helps!
