Common Drone Fly

Observation - Common Drone Fly - UK and Ireland. Description: Saw this in my back garden on a warm sunny July day. Basking in the sun on a leaf. Kept flying off, darting about very quickly before landing in exactly the same spot to bask in the sun again. Large fly, about the size of a honey bee.
