These photos were also taken in a nature reserve near Nettersheim, Germany ("Eifel" hills). Are they good enough to determine the species? I would appreciate your help. Thank you very much.

I think Eristalini. Note how vein R4+5 is sharply curved near the wing tup.

It took me some time to realize that this thread had been moved to the Syrphidae section (where it belongs). Anyway, I'd like to thank you for your help.
