Beneficial insect

I know what the flower is but what is this insect?

I don't remember when I planted the Heart-leaved Aster in the planter on the balcony, but this fall, I have been rewarded with a beautiful display of little white flowers with a pink centre. The flowers attract insects, providing me with plenty of macro photography opportunities (and an exercise in patience). This is the best of 25 images.; 23 were deleted.
