The ARGO-YBJ air shower detector has been in stable data taking for five years at the YangBaJing Cosmic Ray Laboratory (Tibet, P.R. China, 4300m a.s.l.) with a duty cycle > 86% and an energy threshold of a few hundreds of GeV. With the scaler mode technique, the minimum threshold of 1 GeV can be reached. In this paper recent results in γ-ray astronomy will be presented, including those from 4.5 years of observations of the blazar Mrk 421 in common with the Fermi satellite.
