I spotted this approx. 8mm large fly on 22.09.2023 in Germany Baden W├╝rttemberg at the edge of the forest. Is it possible to identify this fly?

Thank you and best regards

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
