Eristalis tenax...female abdomen

Observation - Eristalis tenax...female abdomen - UK and Ireland. Description: The female abdomen often looks rather pointed, compared to the male's. Here, though, she is using her back legs to extend the normally hidden final segments to their full length. the full length is quite surprising!
