Indeed
Again it's a male Myathropa florea!
Did you find any females yet? They look the same, but their eyes don't touch on top of the head. They are usually found in the same area as the males, but spend more time on flowers.
Greetings

 
Not Yet...
Captured one has touching eyes. Seems a bit smaller.
They come out on Jade plants in 4:00 sun :)
