Muscoidea, probably Fannia. I would wish the fly to be pictured at least as well as the personÅ› skin around it. Still, Fannia are often undeterminable to species even in good pics.

Thank Jan for your message!

I'm a bit confused by the information I found. According to this website Fannia sp. belongs to Fannidae. Would you mind letting me know what you think, please?

Muscoidea is a superfamily including the family Fanniidae.

Another possibility is Egle (Anthomyiidae) - which has a projecting mouth margin (as do some Fannia), and is common in the Spring, feeding on Salix catkins.

At least, Anthomyiid - 100%
