The fuchsia bush in our back garden may not be, strictly speaking, wildlife. However, it is attracting a wonderful and diverse range of insects at the moment . I also enjoyed trying to capture the fabulous shapes created by the plant in full-flower. The insect is a Marmalade Hoverfly; well worth looking out for, they are the colours of a tiger and distinctly marked with ‘moustache’ stripes on the third and fourth segments of their abdomen.
