Hi, I think it's not Epicampocera succincta - this one has a black scutellum. Do you have more fotos of this fly? It reminds me of a fly that is very rare in May: Sturmia bella, but for my limited knowledge more pictures could help to identify.
Greetings, Eric

It is Aplomyia confinis, which is very easy to identify …. but not from this angle.
