Many thanks for your kind votes and comments,your kind words and comments make my day! my sincere apologies for my poor input today..

... we got up early as I was to help a client in Poitiers, 100 miles from home. what can I say, half way there it was me who broke down with an overheating car, spent the next two hours to work out that it was the waterpump and that some $%& had put a wrong bolt in the thermostat housing so it sheared of. Got it all out for nothing!!! Had to be rescued by an employee and Chris has fix it tomorrow.
well during the looong wait and after my repair attempt in the rain I had to dry of and pass the time. A camera and a macro lens helpsSmileSmile
the little wasp was of of the many sight behind the abandoned building where I was waiting.

well Ade put me on the right track:
it's a Helophilis Pendulus

What a shame about the break down, Annette, but at least your long wait allowed you to capture this fine shot.

Shame about the car Annette, hope you get it sorted.......It's a Hoverfly BTW, shots a little grainy for my tastes, but still an acceptable image well done to you.....

Ade, you are right the light was anything but good and I plead guilty for a 1000 ASA. was to tired last night to see the grain!
and thanks a lot for the hint, as I said I wasn't paying attention, didn't find it as it wasn't hovering I concluded it was no hoverfly. So I stand Corrected and put in the right name: Helophilis Pendulus
