Hoverflys mating in flight

Just spotted a hoverfly in the garden that was staying very much in the one spot so grabbed the camera and turned out to be this pair in mating flight.. Sorry the top guy is not real sharp around the head, ID is Common Hover Fly – Ischiodon scutellaris. Thought you might like them for the buglove pages
What an amazing and romantic photograph. Thanks for providing our readership with a species identification as well.
