Ron Allen In my garden by RonAllen
This hoverfly may be Eupeodes nitens photogaphed today 30 May 2014 on sedges by my garden pond adjacent garden and secondary willow woodland in Stroud village, near Petersfield, Hampshire. If my identification is correct, this would be an unusual location for this species which appears (from the web) to be a scarce arboreal species in ancient woodland, but perhaps my ID is wholly wrong.

Blue green flies found on sill coverd in Web. by Marc Taylor
I'd appreciate anyone who can help with where to look in identifying these two flies found tangled in spider web on my window just now. I apologise for quality of the images and am really looking for a broad direction not species level lift up.

Is this Tabanidae? by Macrophoto
Drosophila? by Martin Cooper
I don't have a key, but these little flies are always known as fruit flies in the family. I think it is a Drosophila. Is it possible to be more specific? Can anyone recommend a key? There are hundreds of them in the house at the moment so it would be a good time to have a closer look at them!
Help with identification, please. by Macrophoto
