New to the discussions so will have missed any previous posts on identification of this metallic-yellow fly. It was hard to catch stationary so only a single photo at a distance.
Not brilliant photo of golden metallic fly (it flew off) Long abdomen but not as long as dragonfly. Any suggestions please.
How big is it, was it visiting any particular plants?
- We live in The East Midlands.
- Insect was flying around near to garden pond. I guess it was ~1.5cm - so initially thought either a small dragonfly-type or a hornet (we get both) but never seen such shiny metallic golden colouration..
