The marmalade fly is one of th most common of the 270 or so species of flower fly (otherwise known as hover-fly) in the UK.
This male landed on my hand, so I took him in and put him on a plain piece of paper for a background and took some photos.
I thanked him kindly for his co-operation and let him fly off in the garden.
I think the results wer worthwhile, but what do you think?
