It's that time of year again. This is not the biggest horsefly in our region, but this is the largest one should pay close attention to - Tabinus bovinus. The clue is in the name, as it prefers cattle to humans, but if you happen to be around one and you're sweating...... watch out! About an inch and half long, and quite noisy.....unlike the silent 'clegg'

Saw something similar in our garden a couple of days ago. Like a fat bee with dark orange body and large brown eyes. Suspect it was a horsefly of some sort, but couldn't catch up with it.

Pogonosoma maroccanum perhaps? Perhaps even the Asian hornet, Vespa velutina? Have a look at some images on-line. If it's the latter it should be reported ASAP, by the way :eek:

My first attempts at this type of photography, all taken in Wilton, Wiltshire on the grounds of the chalet we were staying in last week (4th to 11th July 2020); I have applied a small amount of PP to them as lighting conditions were not the best (neither was the wind at times):
