Hoverfly - Myathropa florea

Hoverfly - Myathropa florea

Observation - Hoverfly - Myathropa florea - UK and Ireland. Description: The first two photos are of a large Hoverfly initially seen on Arabis before moving to Osteospermum. Pics. 3 & 4 were of a much smaller Hoverfly but they both appear to be the same species. I understand that size can vary quite a lot.
