I was quite surprised to capture one of these in flight,they are quite fast and can dart about in different directions if they see the slightest movement near to them.This one was just about to land on some flowers in the garden.

The Marmalade Hoverfly (Episyrphus balteatus) is a regular migrant to the British Isles,sometimes arriving in dense swarms.The eyes of the males touch in the middle and the double striped markings make this species quite easy to identify (saying that,I hope I got my identification correct on this one!).
