This is the only picture I have of this specimen. Is it at all possible to identify the species?
Thank you for your help :)

Most proabable Bembix oculata. Do you have a frontal pictcure (face, scape etc.)? This will be helpfull for a better diagnosis.

Best wishes, Christian

Thank you Christian for your prompt answer. Unfortunately I have not got any other picture of this specimen. However, a year later, in the same area, I photographed another specimen which has been identified as B. oculata, too.
Thanks again!
