In my garden this morning, these wasp mimics feasted on my Cineraria Silver Dust. (Nikon D3000) The bees don’t like the cineraria much but these flies always turn up each year.




One is able to tell the various bee and wasp mimics apart from their wing venation. Next time I’ll attempt to identify this fellow properly. I had a look at the diagrams but my eyes glazed over.  It’s probably a hoverfly.

Thanks for looking.
