Thanks - had just worked that out, and am in the process of correcting my labels.

Whatever it is, bee or hover fly, the photo is really awesome.

Those Australian hoverflies look exactly like bumblebees!

Just so happens that I came across the largest that I've ever seen in central Georgia, USA. Wide as a blade of grass.

Insects in Tasmania (bumblebee was illegally released 25 years ago - not present on mainland Australia).

I didn't know this. It made me actually identify the "bumble bee" that I have photographed in my back yard in Brisbane. I now know that I have resident (or regularly visiting) blue banded bees and teddy bear bees.

Thanks!


Cheers, Damien

What you have is a hoverfly. But what Armidillo had was a bumblebee.

Well Archibald, I did post 3 photos! One bumble bee, one honey bee, one hover fly.

GAjoe's hover fly looks unnervingly like a wasp (in it's coloration at least...)

Ah, I see...

Quite a few flies are wasp mimics.

Wish I had another angle that shows the last segment to be very flat and not round at all. This one was so much larger than any I have seen in the past. Here's the size that I'm used to seeing

How did the DsR preform for sports? Do you always use that body? I am going to add this lens to my collection as I think it will be a perfect compliment to what I already own.

It doesn't matter what you have Carol... this lens is a must have for a Canon shooter
