This looks like a Tachinid, the wing venation recalls Goniini or Dexiini. Theo can surely tell more; you should change the title to attract his attention.

It look like Lydella sp.. Have you others pictures (side) ? And can you tell more about the environment in which the picture was taken ?

Many thanks for your help Pierre Yves. Unfortunately I have only this one image. It was found among reed beds on boggy ground in a Fen = Marsh.
