Hello everyone,
This picture was made in Lithuania several years ago, somewhen in July or August. I guess it is simple to tell the genus of such a nice creature Smile
Thank you in advance.

I can be mistaken, but I think it is a male of Scaeva selenitica. Such a head, I think can only belong to a Scaeva. Smile

And I can only agree with Paul, this is indeed a male of Scaeva selenitica!
