Drone Hoverfly

After a cold, wet night the afternoon and evening turned out sunny. I went to check the ivy and sure enough there was a hoverfly catching some rays.Photo of drone hoverfly

I think it is a drone hoverfly and I think that judging by the yellow front feet it could be Eristalis pertinax. Thanks to Ryan Clark’s post “Hoverflies To Look Out For” for the distinction between the pertinax and the tenax!Photo of drone hoverfly
