I just had to take a picture off a hoverfly. They are really nice to take photos on. They are often still for some time so that one has some time to experiment a little.

Hi URban, & welcome
Nice detail on the wings and body colour is great. A decent photograph. If you turn your camera a bt sideways, you will get the fly on a diagonal, bringing interest into your picture end enhancing your impact on the viewers.

Hej Urban och všlkommen till TN.
Good image with nice colors and good sharpness.
I'm agree with Callie about a diagonal.
Well done

This is almost certainly from the genus Metasyrphus or Syrphus, I can't pin down the species though. Well done it'a good pic and they are quite good at posing for photos. Good colurs and composition, he certainly looks busy.
