Is it another hoverfly?
No interactions present.
It's a wasp but you would need to see the face in order to go to species level.

Is the face the best feature for identifying these? I just assumed it would be the markings on the abdomen.
Hi John, the face is an important identifying feature which can confirm a species, the abdominal markings can be confusing when used alone.
