    Thanks Andy
    got there eventually.
    it was about six or seven feet away, I had the Pentax K70 and 55-300HD DA and it locked focus so I shot, once and once only.
    Next time I'll try and get it in focus.

    I think we can forgive you for the focus difficulty. You did well to capture this creature in flight at all.

    Good job it wasn't a fly-bee.

    Yup - bee fly. In fact there are very many species of bee fly (Bombyliidae - hope I’ve got that right) and I’m not expert enough to know which one with certainty. However,sticking my neck out, I’d go for the dark edged bee fly (Bombysomething major).

    clues are the furry body, very long proboscis and the dark patterned edge to the wings.

    Well done for getting anything let alone something almost recognisable.
