Probably Tachina fera - about 15mm long, with yellow-orange abdomen sporting wide black dorsal stripe ending in a point. It also sports black bristles on thorax and abdomen. Whitish face.
Here, seen in a small valley in Jura mountain Range, around the lake Lamoura - the highest altitude lake in Jura Mountain range, at 1156m. The valley is surrounded by a coniferous forest, and the majority of it is occupied by grassland, while some of the lake shores are peat-bogs. The site of Lamoura Lake has been designated as a Natura 2000 area, in order to protect this fragile peatbog ecosystem.
Many thanks to Emilie Chich for help in ID-ing this fly.
