Lurking in the hills out near Oxford since 2009.

I think it's one of the more common Robberflies, possibly the Kite-tailed Robberfly (Tolmerus atricapillus)? If so it'll be a female - see Steven Falks page at https://www.flickr.com/photos/63075200@N07/albums/72157629652926157/ for examples
@Jehannum more great photos!
@aggi I went for a D7500 body. I know they are relatively old but I thought that it was better value than the newer D750 and had all the spec I would ever need (well at least for now). Also, looking round, like lots of other high tec goods it seems DSLRs are not always in stock, particularly newer models whereas there seemed to be fewer issues with D7500 availability.

Thanks. I went for the latest generation of the Tamron 90mm macro -
I managed to get an 'as new' for ~half price through mpb. This is a big step up for me from the 18-55mm stock lens that came with my old Nikon SLR but I'm really happy with the results so far.

I stupidly bought the wrong size filter for a new lens, so anyone want a new (packet opened but filter never used) Hoya HD UV 55mm filter for a DSLR? Happy to post for free if you can make a forum donation.
A hoverfly (Volucella inanis), a Yellow Dung Fly (probably), and another orb spider. Noticeably fewer flying insects about and more spiders this morning down by the Thames. All with a new DSLR and second hand Tamron macro lens. Definitely a step up for me - I should have got them at the start of the summer.
