CLOSED: Is this a hoverfly?
Lynne, would you be so kind as to share your photos in BugFiles? They are excellent.
Go to BugFiles and find your bug. Scrolling down you'll see 'Upload an image of this bug.' You can load a pic from there.
Apparently it's Volucella Zonaria sometimes known as Hornet Mimic Hoverfly
