This hoverfly is in our garden just now but I can't ID it. I'm thinking maybe it's not a hoverfly although it's behaving just like one - hovering etc. Any help would be very gratefully received and apologies if this is really obvious, but scouring the books I have and the various web sites I can't find anything close. Thanks in advance.

This is Anthidium manicatum - the Wool Carder Bee.

It certainly looks like the Wool Carder Bee .... I have one making a nest in a plantpot by my pond even as we speak!
