Eristalinus megacephalus..

or a fly.

At a glance, this fly looks like a bee. That reminds us of the family bee fly (Bombyliidae), but actually it doesn't. This fly has yellow stripes on the upperside of its black thorax. It has yellow and black banded on the abdomen. The eyes covered with numerous, small, brown spots that tend to run together on upper part of its yellow compound eyes. The legs are white and black banded. The wings are transparrent.This fly has overall length about 8mm.

I've blipped this fly before but photographed him from behind, now you can see his eyes..
