Volucella Zonaria seen at Podington north Bedfordshire on 24/08/12. I didn't know what it was, thinking it was a hornet at first, but I saw it very close up and looked it up in a reference book immediately. Weather warm and sunny for a few days with a light breeze. The difference from the reference book is the yellow strip between the eyes is broader and the last abdominal segment is paler.I'm not sure if this represents male/female difference. Lovely looking insect!

Hi Sheila

There is Volucella inanis to consider, as well. Not quite as large as zonaria and more yellow, but still very similar. Have a look at the two species here...
