Hoverfly Xanthogramma pedissequum
This attractive species is around for a day or two in the late spring or early summer.
We have had day after day of gusting wind, making macro difficult and reducing the number of insect species venturing out into the open. Yesterday the air became still for half an hour or so and the insects started to bask in the sun.
Olympus EM-1 (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, some at f9, mosty at f11, hand-held.
The stereos are crosseye.
