I think this is a hoverfly but I haven't been able to identify it. Can anyone tell me what it is please?
Sorry for the quality of the photo but it kept moving about and I had to take it quickly (-:
Hate to be a 'fly in the ointment', if you'll forgive the pun, but your hoverfly is Meligramma trianguliferum rather than Meliscaeva auricollis.
The triangular shape of the yellow abdominal markings and the hint of yellow just visible down each side of the thoracic dorsum are diagnostic
of this species. Hope this doesn't confuse you too much!?
