Unidentified Flying Insect

  • Posted July 16, 2011 by Lynda Viewed 673 times

Spotted this fat flying insect on my buddleia. It isn't a bee and looks too big and fat for a hoverfly. I'm hoping Ricky can identify it for me.

      It looks really big , I think it's something like one I photographed and posted in the past can't remember the name but it was Ricky who ID'ed it.
