A Hoverfly(Chrysotoxum festivum) settling on a double white clematis flower in our garden.
Settings: F/6.3 1/320sec ISO200 AV@100mm handheld
NB Many thanks to Dave, (Leafhopper) for the ID - its a Scaeva Pyastri - have amended it in V2
Many thanks for your C&Cs on my last upload - very much appreciated as always
A beautiful image, Sylvia, settling on a white flower has highlighted the intricacy of his wings. Carol
Excellent image Sylvia. (ID : Scaeva Pyastri, due to the shape of the cream stripes.. similar is the Scaeva selenitica. There are about 250 different species of hover fly in the british Isles alone. )
Hi Sylvia this is a great shot gray.

Many thanks for the ID - much appreciated - these are so hard to identify as they all seem so similar - must get a book
