Hoverfly - Sphaerophoria scripta

An obliging male S. scripta allowed me to take several photos of it. I had to wait a short while until it closed its wings to show that the abdomen projects well beyond the closed wings - a characteristic of this species. Also present was a female (final photo), probably also the same species but not possible to be definitive about this.
