Unknown Fly

Description:

A bunch of focus stacking attempts that I thoughtweren't good enough for Flickr but are good enough for here :) This is rare fly here, but I guess it's still among the relatively common,well documented ones. I haven't been able to find the exact species, but it seems close to the green bottle fly (?). The only problem is the eyes, which don't match.

Notes:

The colors have not been exaggerated/played around with.

Thanks Johan and Dragoon. I thought of the green bottle fly too but I couldn't find any pictures where the two eyes touch each other, like here.

I'd lean towards the bottlefly, since it has varying headshapes at times. Although, it may well be a different species.
