Hoverfly

One August day, we had a mini-invasion of hoverflies (Episyrphus balteatus) feeding from the flowers of a hosta plant on the patio. Just the excuse I needed to sit there with a cup of tea and the camera on a monopod snapping away with a macro lens.

This is one of the best of the many images taken.
