Where was photo taken? It looks like a fruit fly (Tephritidae); if in the USA could be in genus Eutreta - http://bugguide.net/node/view/27534/bgimage

dear Flapdoodle,
this might be a fruit fly. though i took this photo in USA, the genus does not look similar to Eutreta.
this one that i uploaded here did not closed its wings at all. its wings were upright all the time like a Geisha's fan. even when this fly scurried across, its both wings were held vertical like a battle shield.

Maybe in a related family (Ulidiidae) - http://bugguide.net/node/view/315389/bgimage
