Much smaller than a bluebottle. The photo hasn't caught how deep and bright the yellow on the wings is. As the fly moved from ivy flower to ivy flower (it moved a lot and moved fast - it didn't hover) the yellow was so strong it looked as if its body was bright yellow. Only when I looked at its picture on screen did I realise the yellow is on its wings - and only on part of the wings at that!
