30 Days Wild Pan-species Challenge: Day 25

Today’s lifer was a nice hoverfly which goes by the name of Eupeodes corollae, a common species which lives in virtually every corner of the British Isles. I found it on a road verge near my village, it was feeding on an Umbellifer amongst a plethora of Episyrphus balteatus.

It’s a prertty standard-looking hoverfly but they all count. I believe that the joined stripes on the abdomen are characteristic of this species.
