Description:

In hedgerow on Elder leaf. About 5mm long.
Provisionally identified by google image search and then cross-checking, but I don't know whether there are other similar species. Fascinating bit about behaviour here: http://www.naturbildarchiv-guenter.de/en/picture-stories/flies/kiss-fly/...
