Tephritid flies mating on an Ox-eye Daisy plant.

I saw at least two mating pairs (three from memory) and unattached individuals, one waving its wings (trying to attract a mate visually? or a male distributing pheromone?. Whether volatiles from this plant have pheromone activity towards these flies is perhaps worth speculating on.
