Formation flying

formation flying

I observed the oddest behaviour by some hoverflies today on these margarites. As you can see in the photo they stacked up as they flew from flower to flower. They kept this formation perfectly for some time as they moved around the flowers. Perhaps there are some entomologists out there who can offer an explanation but I’ve never seen that before.
