A bee-fly spotted in the garden for the first time

Today is a red-letter day. Bee-flies are a wonderful insect and herald the arrival of spring. Today is the first time I’ve seen a bee-fly in our garden. I even managed to get a picture. This is the bee-fly Bombylius major.

I also saw a Comma butterfly (Polygonia c-album) in the garden today too!
