Fly photos wanted urgently please

The Devon Wildlife Trust have asked for a feature in their magazine, Natural Devon, on three spring flies.  Importantly, they need a high quality photo of each.

The flies we have chosen are:

Dark-edged bee fly, Bombylius major
St Mark's fly, Bibio marci
and the hoverfly Criorhina ranunculi - does anyone have an English name for this?

If you have a good quality photo of any of these which you are willing to let the Devon Wilflife Trust publish, free of charge, then I should be most grateful.  You will of course be credited.

The Trust needs the images as soon as possible.

Happy New Year to all

C ranunculi - the Blackthorn sentinel after it's habit of patrolling spring flowering trees and seeing off all comers. Or you could call it the Blackthorn Challenger.
Ask Ian Andrews for photos. He'll have some good ones.
