Very impressive photography, My favourite is the second image with the bee in mid flight.
Has anyone else seen bees like that in aus? Or is it a wasp?

great photos! Smile

the insect featured is a hoverfly, yes we have them in Australia.

there are apparently 200 genera and 6,000 known species.

Nice pics Fingoen. Is that a Parodia?

Lewis I have feeling that what you are seeing here in Aus is more likely one of these little fellas. Though as you say we have hoverflies too.

Just sayin' Razz

Opening this unknown can will only result in worms all over my floor.
Lucky I'm too tired to find the can opener.

i see hoverflies often especially in spring-early summer and they are much commoner than the native bee species around here.

though i do see a type of blue banded bee on occasion: http://images.google.com.au/images?gbv=2&hl=en&safe=strict&um=1&sa=1&q=blue+banded+bee+&aq=f&oq
definitely not common though. ubiquitous feral honey bees outnumber them many many times here.

I liked the bumblebees in Tasmania. very cute, even if they are introduced.
