Eristalis in Cape May - Eristalis tenax - female

Eristalis in Cape May - Eristalis tenax - Female
Cape May Point, Cape May County, New Jersey, USA
October 26, 2009
They were very numerous on goldenrod flowers only when the weather got better, after wind and rain the previous days. I saw many males and females and a couple that look like another species of Eristalis but I didn't get any decent pictures of those. I hope that this is E. tenax

Thanks. There were lots of them.
I finally fixed the date (senior moment, don't ask).
