Hoverfly - Cheilosia sp.

By Mendipman  
My first proper early morning macro trip this year up on the hills overlooking where I live. It was more difficult than I had hoped when looking for insects to photograph and eventually found this hoverfly which I am still trying to confirm the full id. The curly strands on the dead plant are strands of wool from the sheep that are grazing the hill.

Best viewed large.

Many thanks for the votes and comments on the previous upload of the Bluebell and especially to Pete (civitas) for your User Award, all so very much appreciated. GrinGrinGrinGrin
