[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I think this is Eupeodes luniger,a small Hoverfly (about 8 mm long) which was feeding on the nectar of these flowers in our garden.
Eupeodes luniger is a common species throughout Britain and a known migrant.


The flowers are the blossom of a small shrub,I've asked my wife (head gardener!)but she doesnt know the name of this plant,it was already growing here when we moved in.
