Hoi Gordo,
I think it is a female of Eristalis tenax, a very common species of the family Syrphidae.
Normally very easily to determine by the 2 rows of hairs running over its eyes, but they are not very well visible here.
In spring the species is overall a bit darker in colour than for example in autumn. The species is then very abundant!

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
