still some flowering patches, with attendant queues of flies
No interactions present.
a mysteriously darkish dung fly (image 1) beside the ubiquitous reddish ones (image 2), but I think it must be a Yellow dung fly and that I've just got used to seeing the redder fly, so was taken by surpirise. Dark antennae, and a specimen taken - but they're all fighting over the last few Ivy flowers. A big blue muscid tried to land and was savagely attacked by the large red fly

stercoraria differs hugely in size and in colour. Females are often very dark and relatively hairless.
Calliphorids are the main visible fly left round here, though while lying down perusing mosses in search of Snow Fleas, I have seen a lot of Lonchopterids, recently.
My Flickr photos...
yep, not muscid. Big blue psychodelic butt equals blow fly I think
