It always amazes me that I can still find new hover fly species in my garden. Syritta pipiens is a very common species of European hover fly. Sometimes called the thick-legged hoverfly, from its distinctive broad hind femora. They are fast nimble fliers, Larvae feed in rotting organic matter. Wikipedia
