Not hovering on wattle

The east coast low is moving further away and we have another day of sunshine to bring out the birds and insects. 
Although the wet weather has spoilt much or the wattle flowers we still have many that are covered in blossom and they are a magnet for the bees, beetles and flies. I found a Common Hover Fly Ischiodon scutellaris busy feeding on the blossom of our dwarf Acacia fimbriata, just moving from one pollen laden ball to the next .
