Since the veins near the wing tip meet in a 90 degree angle, I would say Pipizella, most likely P. viduata.

The stigma seems to be tapering towards the wing tip. That points towards E. abusiva and E. arbustorum. The first has very short-haired arista, and the second one plumose arista. I'd say E. arbustorum.
