I was trying to take a very close picture of the flower, on the same day as I took this picture
, when this hover fly landed right in front of me. It only hung around for a moment or two, but what a treat! And yes, I was very
close to it.
This is a 100% crop of the original picture, taken using the Zuiko Digital 35mm macro lens
on my E-400.

I think I've identified this as the Sun Fly, Heliophilus pendulas
, and I think it's a female..
