Hoverfly on a past-its-best lily

I think this is episyrphus balteatus, also known as the marmalade fly or marmalade hoverfly. It is very common in the UK

Wonderful - - those "rainbow wings" are amazing. Think you're right with the i.d. - at least my mate Art (Leapfrog) thinks so with the one I inadvertently captured!!

A great hoverfly shot and composition. The colours on the wings are wonderful. I'm glad you got Gatekeepers too. We don't get many butterfly species as our garden is cool & windy at top of North Downs but I love those that come.
