Hi out there, a few day ago, I went for a walk and took my camera with me. Alongside a forest road there were a lot of Solidago aka goldenrod. On these flowers I got many insects, especially Syrphidae, taking a bath in pollen. A few I could identify by my self, for some I need confirmation (or refuse if I'm wrong) and some I didn't know at all what species I got, can you help out?
1st, is this a female of Syrphus vitripennis?
Thanks for your help, have a nice day, Norbert

Hi Norbert, it looks like femur III is mostly black: S. vitripennis.
