Female of the small Uk hoverfly, Melanostoma scalare, a frequent garden visitor.  Used by a German magazine as part of a composite image.

Would you be able to identify a fly we saw at Sutton Hoo last week? Not Alamy quality, but I'd never seen the like and couldn't nail it from the books I have, nor from the online guids which sem to require a bit more botany than I have.

It's a hoverfly, hornet mimic, Volucella sp probably zonaria.  Big enough to give anyone a fright if they didn't know they were completely harmless.

Thanks very much- I had him down for a hoverfly but couldn't find that one. Fortunately I know what a hornet looks like- a chuffing big wasp basically- and I wouldn't have got that close to one without a rolled-up Sunday edition of the Times.

This was the first picture I took with my RX100 M2.  Bought it on Kijiji classifieds and met the guy at a mall.
