Common Snout-hoverfly-Rhingia campestris...

By Badgerfred
Captured on the 5th of September on a walk along the River Rhymney.
A big thank you to Bob(bobpaige1) and Mike(Mike_Smith) for their much appreciated user awards for my last upload A Crane Fly...

I've been missing for a few days because my sister in law passed away and we have been up to Sheffield for her funeral, so not a very happy time at the present, but back on site now.......

I love these little flies, their noses look to be made of mahogany! You've caught it beautifully.
