A syrphid, but no further from those photos, try to get better resolution. Most smart phones can take excellent shots.

Unfortunetly I released the fly after take the photographs. Any ways my mobile is not in this group of "with excellents cameras"... so I guess that would be near the better pictures I could have taken 😅.

The wing spots remind me of Ferdinandea cuprea but can't positively ID it from this image.

Looking at pictures in the web my fly its very like to F. cuprea. Maybe its not the same species but... better than nothing.

Thanks to both.
