just hangin' around

By Dennis.Alden  
I'm finding Hoverfiles tricky little devils to photograph in flight - this is my best effort so far!

Can anybody give me an ID on the species as my book doesn't shopw one with a white stripe after the black one!

Nicely caught Dennis. These are not always easy to capture sharp when pitched.
This one looks like it is going to come out of the frame!
I have given up trying to get an flight shot.
ID-I am pretty certain it is Episyrphus balteatus.We have loads in the garden.
