Contrary to first impressions this is neither a wasp nor a bee but a Hoverfly and therefore pretty harmless.

absolutely brilliant photo focus over the fly is spot on. Feel myself that if the flower was different we could have seen the fly even more.

Waiting for incoming as i not got any photos on line yet....
