a bee? on Cirsium arvense growing on grassland at the head of Ardtoe Beach, Acharacle, North West Highlands of Scotland. Time of day was midday.
No interactions present.
A useful new dot for the map - it has just become evident, and I saw several today near Lochinver. Sometimes called the Bumblebee Fly for obvious reasons.

Thanks for the identification - really appreciated.
