Not too shabby a shot that, I like the composition.
Looks like one of the more common Hovers.
It is Eupeodes luniger - a female. The spots on the abdomen don't reach the margins and you can just about make out the "Y" shaped mark on the frons. A very common, late summer species often boosted by immigration, and a frequent garden visitor. Nice piccie, but a bit over-sharpened for my taste!
Are you "Stuart" from UKhoverflies?
Love it. (I also very much enjoyed looking through your Flickr photostream. So much to like, in all the variety of subjects.)
Thanks for looking...cheers Nick
