Eristalis tenax – Common Dronefly
The Common Drone Fly (or Dronefly) (Eristalis tenax) is, as the name infers our commonest dronefly. They are called droneflies as they resemble the honeybee drone. These are certainly the commoest dronefly on my small garden.
I hope to replace these images with better ones in due course… then I came across some my son took in my garden last year… so thanks Ash for some stupendous images!
