Hello Royanto!
I think you are right, this species looks also for me as member of Syrphidae family. Anyway, this one is really amazing! Its eyes are huge like in dragonflies, not in flies! :>
Once again thanks to your pictures I can see something new and interesting. And for this: thanks a lot!!!
On the other hand (TN is a place where some critiques are written too ;>) I think that you sharped this photo a little to much. But of course it is only my opinion :)
Best greetings,

This guy have really big head :)
Cool shot well saturated.
Can't help with identification.

Hi Royanto
I don't know what kind of fly it is, but it looks like a hoverfly with a pilot helmet ;)
Wonderful macro with perfect realization.
Congratulations and TFS.
