Hi, again!

Yet another fly drinking nectar from my, "Ílandstok" (Dasiphora fruticosa).
Haven't found what species this is, so I would be happy if you could help me!

Hi Jan,

I know that flies don't attract a lot of attention on TN. But are'nt they interesting and spectacular, you and I know that. Here you deal with a Tachinidae fly, it might be Eryothrix rufomaculata but you better check with www.diptera.info. I hope to see more of your flies. I added this one to the Theme called Diptera excl. Syrphidae of Europe.

Best regards
