In Flight

By dalischone  
Not sure if this is a type of bee or hoverfly, I'm hoping one of the epz brains can let me know - lol! Was surprised that I managed to get anything half decent, just clicking away in garden. Haven't picked up the camera for a while and hoping that I'd get the bug back (pardon the pun!!)

Hi to everyone and thanks for looking.

Its about time!!!!!!!!!!!!!... Don't make the absence a habit!
I'll tell you what type of insect it is once we've found my daughters book on bugs......its like a war zone in her room! Ever seen one of those programs about people who obsessively collect things.................?!
