Volucella pellucens - Hoverfly

Volucella pellucens - Hoverfly
France, Fontainebleau, August 2010

This hoverfly occurs in much of Europe, and across Asia to Japan.
It is about 15–16 mm in length with a broad body. It is mainly black, but the front part of the abdomen has a broad, yellow band, giving it the appearance of a bee or wasp. The two wings are transparent, as with most flies, but the leading edge is amber, with a brown patch on each wing: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volucella_pellucens

Thanks all for the nice comments and the favourites, very much appreciated!
