Description:

I was struck by how vivid the yellow was on this insect - much brighter than any of the other hoverflies I've seen. It looks like it would be a good wasp mimic. Sorry that the picture is a little blurred but could anyone identify this for me, please?

Thanks for identifying the hoverfly for me. I'm making a list of all the wildlife I spot in my garden so the info is useful.
