Description:

Continuing from my posts ("Hovering fly…") of 9th and 11th August
There were several these flies hovering today, closer to me than before, and I wonder if these somewhat improved images allow a firmer opinion as to ID. I think the small yellow patches towards the front of the abdomen probably include halteres – less certainly coloured patches on the body.

Identifications
