Hi, I took this photo last weekend. I had thought it was a bee ... but someone suggested it's a fly - a hoverfly .... can you help to identify it please?
maybe a Beefly (http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bombyliidae)
It's a hoverfly, Volucella zonaria.
...And it is a fine photo of it!
Thanks Mike, I got really lucky with the camera on my phone. First attempt. Subsequent photos not as good!
Thank you Florin!
