What a beautiful Hoverfly!

And...is that a variety of Morning Glory, Chris?
Chris: Isn't it gorgeous Ray. I think the plant is called field bindweed, a native of the UK

The hollyhocks are so ready to receive the bee. Wonderful image!
Chris: Just one of a million things happening at any one time in a field Philine

I did not know they are Hollyhocks Tiff, but now I do. I used to mistake hoverflies for wasps.
Chris: I am a fan of hoverflies Chad, they always seem to be friendly and nippy

Very nice too, Chris. I think I recall you taking this
Chris: Presumably on a parish walk Lisl?
Très belle prise de vue ..
Chris: I am obliged to you Claudine

The plant could be called Wicke/vetch.
Chris: Thank you Philine
Why is it I seem to be the only person who isn't quick enough to capture characters like these, and that goes for Dragonflies as well!
Chris: It's all a matter of patience Brian, give it a go
You can take back your bindweed, thank you, beautiful as it is. Nice capture.
Chris: Agreed it can be a nuisance

You can forgive bindweed its smothering and clambering when it has such pretty flowers. The hoverfly is certainly appreciating it!
Chris: You probably know this bindweed is a small thing Anne
Nice shot, Chris.
Chris: Thank you kindly Tom

is this some deadly stinging thing ready to bring a long agonising death?
Chris: Noo - it's a dear little hoverfly!
I rather like hoverflies. Pretending to be wasps
Chris: Yes indeed - pretty, rather silly and harmless
Philine is sadly wrong at calling them Hollyhocks ...
Referring to Bill's comment: ''I rather like Billiam. Pretending to be a great photographer'' [grin]
Chris: I wasn't going to tell her

Billo is a twiddlemeister
Wonderful shot, Chris! We have field bindweed.... no doubt brought over from the Mother Ship, er... Mother Land smile
Chris: I've no doubt whatever it came over with the founding fathers lodged aboard ship..
