Hoverflies

You have also got two Eristalis hoverflies...probably E. tenax, from the size, colour and thick set shape.

Thank you - re. hoverflies

Many thanks for the really helpful info about the hoverflies, ophrys. The ragwort was teeming with various insects; it's great to have this extra ID - a real bonus! Thank you!
