Tiny (a few millimetres long) fly with shiny black body, bulbous head, and iridescent wings.
No interactions present.
Not heard these flies called Lesser Dung Flies before. I thought these generally referred to Sphaeroceridae.
AKA Ensign Flies possibly S.fulgens but cant be certain from these two images
