Paragini maybe?

This one was a bit odd, it walked with its middle pointing up in the air in an ^ sort of shape (as you can see in the "Wing" shot from above). Not sure if that is normal for it or whether it was feeling a bit ill.
Found in Hertfordshire.
Obviously a hoverfly but I couldn't satisfactorily key it to tribe level, but based on where I got to in the key and looking at lots of descriptions and pictures beyond that, Paragini seemed to fit best.
