? Volucella inanis ?

Having a rest near a small wasp nest in my backyard, North Dorset, 30 July 2014


Is this Volucella inanis ?

    Yep, that's the baby. V. zonaria has much broader black bands and a chestnut coloured thorax, also are generally more orange in colour. The ovipositor is out on this one so looks like she is looking to lay eggs.
