What happened to this drone fly?

I was thinking about photographing a vetch when I noticed a small white object. When I looked more closely I saw it was the head of an insect so I took the photo.

It seemed lifeless. It would appear to be a drone fly Eristalis tenax except for the white face. I wondered if it had been parasitised or maybe the white was the result of fungus. Anyone care to speculate?
