User's notes

Pretty much all day these insects would fly in from above, hover round the leaves and occasionally land. Very odd behaviour for a potter wasp? Or is this a fly or something other than a wasp? The tree was not in flower. I staked it out for an hour to get these 3 shots as most did not land.
