Big bad hoverfly

Yes, it is insect season here in this glorious World of Nature. So, expect more than a few insects to appear on the site over the coming months. Here is one of the commonest (or at least most obvious) beasts around the insect-rich brambles at Glapthorne Cow Pastures (26.6.05). My good friend The Natural Brian (check out his site for a wider selection of insects from Glapthorn today), has kindly identified this brilliant hoverfly, with spotted wings as Volucella pellucens.
