Excellent image Sylvia. (ID : Scaeva Pyastri, due to the shape of the cream stripes.. similar is the Scaeva selenitica. There are about 250 different species of hover fly in the british Isles alone. )
Dave

Lovely detailed shot Sylvia, in view of the number of different species in the British Isles you now only have 249 to go for a full set Wink LOL
