One of my favourite hoverflies, a species which I rarely see anywhere but on tree trunks, basking in the early morning sun. A really smart species. Nice picture!

Thanks

This is only the second one I have ever seen and I agree a fine species, I just like that bronze colouring. My only slight regret is that it was perched on a very shiny vivid green leaf but it was nice to get an image.
