Unknown “Fly”

Dear S.A.,
Alas, your image is far too blurry for us to identify, but we are posting it.  Perhaps one of our readers will take a stab at an identification.

Update:  We can’t believe Cesar Crash provided what seems to be an excellent possibility:  a female Yellow Headed Parasitic Snail Blow Fly that is pictured on Brisbane Insects.
