Great Pied Hoverfly (Volucella pellucens) west of Loch Ness

I'm sorry for the lack of posts over the last two and a half months but I was away most of April and busy catching up after I returned so apart from anything else I missed posting a number of press releases from TFL and the HWDT. I might put a couple of the more significant ones up but thought I'd start off with some images and a video of a female Splayed Deerfly  Chrysops caecutiens feeding on a blue cornflower.

Well I thought it was until Neil Anderson pointed out in the comments below that it was the Great Pied Hoverfly Volucella pellucens which is the very opposite of the rarity I thought I'd found.

I should have paid more attention and feeling suitably
embarrassed I have now altered the post accordingly.

This web site is about the wildlife, particularly the mammals, of the Glen Affric National Nature Reserve area in the north west Highlands of Scotland, UK; and the equipment I use to search for them, which is chiefly trail cameras.

I provide a technical support and parts service for the Ltl Acorn range of cameras and the income from this provides for the upkeep of this site and the purchase of cameras for my own surveying.

I hope you find the site useful and informative; and please contact me if you have any questions that I haven't already covered.
