Another hoverfly this time visiting a self-seeded parsley plant which I think looks lovely when in flower. I hope to collect some of the seeds and scatter them in the herb garden where hopefully they will emerge next spring.

  1. Such a fine macro – and what a pretty pairing with parsley flower (never appreciated the diminutive blooms until this close-up)
    p.s. Since macro is a forte of yours you might like to id the hoverfly
    I think it’s a male (eyes meet at top of head) Episyrphus balteatus (marmalade fly) – good image checklist here
