It's not been a great year for hoverflies this year. I think the strange weather has affected them, as other than early on in the Spring I've really not seen many at all. So I was very pleased yesterday to see several hoverflies in two of our local parks.
There were several marmalade hoverflies (Episyrphus balteatus) in Dalry Gorgie Community Park, though I could only get two of them in the one photo
Saughton Park was also full of common wasps and bees, including this white tailed bumblebee
