On the lookout

By steveplant
A male Bee Fly, Bombylius major, defending his patch against other males, (and other intruders, he saw off a male Orange Tip butterfly that passed close by), and hoping to attract a female. He briefly came down for nectar but then straight back up and on guard.

A brilliant photo - not the easiest of bugs to photograph when they are feeding, let alone on the wing!
