This insect is about one inch long, moves quickly and erratically around the flowering plants drinking nectar especially from Nepeta, Lavender and Verbena bonarensis. Has been an infrequent visitor, once per day when the sun shines and yesterday was the first time I had seen two. The garden is full of insect friendly plants and is adjacent to pasture and orchards on the edge of the Somerset Levels
