Dasysyrphus tricinctus

What with the weather finally improving I decided try my luck with the camera in the
garden. I wasn't to be disappointed as I found this hover:

Dasysyrphus tricinctus

That middle bar makes it very distinctive, it's Dasysyrphus tricinctus.

It's not rare, being widely distributed in the UK but from what I can gather it's not
especially common either.

I did take some HD video, not brilliant, but not bad!


That is my 26th species of hoverfly, nearly all of which I've found in the garden.
