Marmalade Hoverfly

Episyrphus balteatus


Another hoverfly (9–12 mm) of the Syrphidae family, flying from plant to plant on my garden.


Found it rovering in the middle of a variety of plants on my countryside house's garden.


Photo taken with a Canon 600d. The second photo is just a cropped version of the first one.
