[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Spent ages wondering around my garden snapping little critters like this, have better photos yet there not as sharp as this one unfortunately! very pleased with the super macro function on my 3.2 mp digital camera yet wish the snaps were as crisp as some i have seen on here... as im not a biologist im not sure what this fly is...

Welcome to TN Brad. The ID appears to be Scaeva pyrastri. Hard to tell without seeing the whole fly.

Good picture, nice POV and composition.

Well done. On TN you need to write notes to you pictures.
