I photographed this approximately 15mm long horsefly on May 17, 2020 near a body of water in Schleswig-Holstein, Northern Germany.
Is it Hybomitra bimaculata?

Thank you and best regards, Frank

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol
