Year three - garden visitor

**please view on the black background if you have time**

I think that this is a hover fly but not one that I have seen before. It's thorax was almost translucent. There were a couple of them flying around the buddleia. Unusually they seems to stay settled for a while too which enabled me to get a couple of decent shots with my macro lens.

Three good things today:
1. The first day of my two weeks off work :)
2. Got all of the back garden weeded and gave the pond a bit of a clear out.
3. I put a fillet of pork in the slow cooker with a home made BBQ style sauce - turned it into really nice pulled pork! will be making this again :)
Amazing close up and detail, Al!
