Hoverfly

A hoverfly of the species Episyrphus balteatus (a fairly common species characterized by the two narrow black 'moustaches' on its abdomen).  Photo taken in Reading University grounds, Reading, UK, on 2008-07-26.  One of the first photos I took with my present camera was of one of these; see here.
