Pair of small insects found on a freshwater poolside plant. The closest match I can get from its shape and wing is a Chironomus sp.
No interactions present.
Yes to family Chironomidae, I don't know enough about them to confirm whether or not it is genus Chironomus.

Thanks. I suppose many of these insects are very disfficult to identify with any certainty from low resolution photographs.
