I have photographed this fly on July in the wet part of a forest 40km SW of Paris.
Size about 7-8mm long. The flower is a hogweed.
Any idea?
Thanks for help!

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
