This fly was "sunbathing" on an open sandy embankment in a bilberry-rich pine forest; 14.05.2022 (L√ľneburg, eastern Niedersachsen, Germany).

It followed exactly all my movements while I tried to take photos, so it was only possible to get it in front view...

Hi Jann, I think you are right - maybe that female was looking for a place to lay some eggs :S

Eggs are laid on the host, Cervus in this case.
