:hi: Biker, a beautiful one, indeed :thumbs:
First i thought, maybe an Osmia cornuta, but it doesn't really fit. There are so many various.....

....just as of these hoverflies, i can't classify them

A good reason not to clean my windows :laugh:
a lovely little caterpillar had itself wrapped up in a cocoon on the window pane to my terrace,
yesterday a cute brimstone butterfly "hatched" :D

waiting until the wings were dried out, then flew off to the flowers

Syrphus ribesii fits wel. From the Chrysotoxum I think you have the big one - Chrysotoxum fasciolatum :unsure:

...i still have some I did not recognize despite search :book:
not only hoverflies..

What a beautiful observation from hatching :D
