Two interacting (?) hoverflies

Observation - Two interacting (?) hoverflies. Description: These two hoverflies were successively taking off and returning to low vegetation in close proximity to each other. They were doing so in broadly the same area as in my previous post “Does Myathropa florea do much hovering” (to iSpot 17/12/2012). Again,

These two hoverflies were successively taking off and returning to low vegetation in close proximity to each other. They were doing so in broadly the same area as in my previous post “Does Myathropa florea do much hovering” (to iSpot 17/12/2012). Again, I could be looking at some form of competitive interaction between males.
