some hoverflies from last week

From the university grounds some early spring hoverflies.
 Epistrophe eligans male
 Eupeodes luniger male
 Platycheirus albimanus female
 Platycheirus albimanus male
Syrphus torvus male, if you make bigger by clicking on the image and look closely you can see the hairy eyes which differentiate this earlier flier from the much commoner Syrphus ribesii.
