Hovering around plantain

Coming in for a landing. . .  an American hoverfly attracted to a blooming plantain stalk.

As I was photographing a close-up shot of the two plantain stalks, I noticed the American hoverfly coming into viewing range.  Here are a couple more photos of this insect as it goes about its business of pollinating the plantain.
