No interactions present.
I'm fairly sure this is a fly in family Muscidae, but this is a large family with many similar-looking species. Identification keys for this family rely heavily on small details, e.g. position of various small hairs on the body, so they're often hard or impossible to identify from photos (at least, I find them hard!).

Thank you martin ...
Am I the only user who cannot see the image of the fly? From Kitenet's reply I presume the photo is visible to other users. Can anyone suggest what the problem might be (and how I can fix it) as I can see the photos on the other postings?
The photo was there when I posted the identification, but I think it has been removed - johnmarkwaters posted this observation twice, and I think may have intended to delete one of them. The photo can be seen at:
I'll add the identification there as well!
Thanks for the explanation and the link.
Indeed Th photo did seem to fly off somewhere but have put it back ...
