Autumn Air Still Buzzing

Eristalis intricarius

On my walk to the local Beech wood this afternoon I passed some ivy in bloom on a roadside verge, and was quite amazed at how many hoverflies were busying themselves feeding of the sweet nectar and pollen.

I was also taken how the autumn sunlight appeared to make their colours richer.

They were that busy hovering around from flower to flower they were quite tricky to photograph.
