I took this photo in the Gard in Southern France in August. It was perching on a stone and making sorties from there to chase other insects. The habitat was garrigue - dry scrub woodland on limestone. Sorry about the quality of the photo. The insect was about 20mm long. Any clues to its identity?

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
