Hovering hoverflies

Observation - Hovering hoverflies. Description: I see this hoverfly species hovering in flight more often then any other hoverflies, so I couldn't resist trying to get some flight photos. What marvelous insects these are! The first 2 photos are the same female, and the 3rd photo is a male.
