Episyrphus balteatus

Episyrphus balteatus РMarmalade Hoverfly

Another hoverfly with a splendid name is the Marmalade Hoverfly (Episyrphus balteatus) but the reason wasn’t imediately obvious to me as they seem to be small (very small) wasp-like hoverflies. It wasn’t until I got some (slightly) better shots in the sun a see the colour of their stripes… just like a nice pot of the homemade spread!
