Hornet from yesterday at Cotehele Cornwall.
My Fbook Group
Just picked up this poor sad female Volucella Zonaria, Hornet mimic hoverfly, from the soggy ground in my garden but still good comparison to the real thing!
Not her lucky day!

A pair of lady bug thingies from by the river this morning
In reply to WendyBartter:
WendyBartter said:Great pics PB, do love a ladybird or two but these look possibly 'harlequin' to me but could be wrong! Wait for others opinions!
I'd agree the reddish legs does suggest they are Harlequins
