Six-belted Clearwing

Having caught Six-belted and other Clearwing species back in June this year I hadn't anticipated seeing another one this year - they weren't on my radar at all. However, today while walking my butterfly transect on Bushy Bank near Wallingford I came across and watched a female flying about testing out suitable Lotus plants and laying eggs. Hardly ever see clearwings without a lure so this was  a real treat. I then found a Hornet Robberfly which I don't see often either.
