Hover Fly?


Photo Information
I first thought that this insect was a slim wasp but after looking at a book I now believe it to be a 'Hover Fly'. They were really drawn to the pink/red garden lily.

The best things about hover flies is that they are nice and colourful, they don't sting and they don't move around too fast!
Nice shot.
