Epistrophe eligans
Epistrophe eligans, originally uploaded by Michel Vuijlsteke.

Some hoverfly species, such as Epistrophe eligans are highly beneficial to gardeners eating aphids and other “pest” species.

I really like the image Michel captured, and it reminds me of the old Godzilla type monster movies.
