Struggled to get a decent shot of a Hover today. It was very, very hot and the wee blighters would not stay still. There were hundreds of them too and a good variety of species as well. I'll have to return earlier/later in the day when it's a tad cooler. It was very frustrating.

(Canon 5Dsr and MP E-65 with Yongnuo twin head flash and foam diffused head covers).

Very nice it is a male and I think Episyrphus balteatus

Cheers D. Yeah, could be that. I've lost my two insect and spider ID books so can't confirm. I'll have to get some new ones.

In the 21st Century we use apps to ID critters... 😁 iNaturalist identifies it as a Marmalade Hoverfly (Episyrphus balteatus) as davholla mentioned.
