Greenbottle species?

Greenbottle species?

Observation - Greenbottle species? - UK and Ireland. Description: I think that this is a greenbottle. The tail end of the abdomen is greenish and I read that Lucilia caesar develop a coppery tinge with age. However, I don't know if that is also true of other Lucilia species, so I've opted for a broad identification.

The third photo is (obviously) of a different individual at the same location, but I don't know if this is the same species as the coppery one.
