hoverfly Criorhina berberina, Buckinghamshire

Observation - hoverfly Criorhina berberina, Buckinghamshire - UK and Ireland. Description: I went to remove a large, buzzing 'bumblebee' from our kitchen today, but when I looked at it more closely I was pleased to see that it wasn't a bumblebee at all, but a hoverfly doing a very good impression of a bee. Great to get a close view of a species

I went to remove a large, buzzing 'bumblebee' from our kitchen today, but when I looked at it more closely I was pleased to see that it wasn't a bumblebee at all, but a hoverfly doing a very good impression of a bee. Great to get a close view of a species I've only seen a few times before.
