Looking to the Skies Versus Bee Mimics

I took a circular walk around Lark Rise Farm in Barton, an organic farm run by the Countryside Restoration Trust, with the view dominated by the Radio Telescopes at Lord's Bridge quivering in the heat haze. However, I spent my time looking downward at the insect life and became aware of a number of Hoverfly mimics of the Bumblebee species (shown in pairs with hoverfly on the left). There are some wonderful meadows there - how English Meadows should look with lots of Damselflies and Banded Demoiselles.
