Superb large wasp-mimic hoverfly around the ivy flowers - my first garden record.
No interactions present.
I saw my first one of these today but failed to get the pic. I hadnt seen a hoverfly of this size before. Great picture above.
Easiest pic of the day - it seemed to be doped out, maybe too much ivy nectar?

Its a great image, I was within a millisecond of pressing the button but there was one bit of vegetation in the way and I was straining a bit trying to hold it out of the way, it flew off and didnt stop. Theyre an impressive size.
