Drone Fly (Eristalis tenax)

Drone Fly (Eristalis tenax)
A drone fly feeding on ragwort in the margins of the local golf course. The diagnostic orange patches and wing veins (1st two converge and the 3rd has a 'U' bend) are clearly visible. The common name results from its resemblance to a male honeybee.
