On such a beautiful Sunday afternoon and spurred on by the excellent field guide by Ball and Morris, Britain's Hoverflies (2nd edition) and the Hoverflies Facebook group I had my first attempt at photographing some of the hoverflies at Pilmoor. Virtually the only plant in flower were some tall umbellifers and a small stand of purple-flowered mint sp.. I was reasonably happy with the results, hand-held on a day with some breeze, and at least managed to identify most of the species taken.
