Anyone got ideas? It has a big stinger
It's a fly, maybe a tephritid (picture wing fly) or a pallopterid. I just had a quick look through the tephritid gallery here -
and this was the nearest (in wing markings) I saw at a quick glance. But a more thorough look might find you a better match. The 'stinger' is, I think, just its ovipositor, indicating it's a female.
