Ron Allen In my garden by RonAllen

This hoverfly may be Eupeodes nitens photogaphed today 30 May 2014 on sedges by my garden pond adjacent garden and secondary willow woodland in Stroud village, near Petersfield, Hampshire.  If my identification is correct, this would be an unusual location for this species which appears (from the web) to be a scarce arboreal species in ancient woodland, but perhaps my ID is wholly wrong.

Any ideas?

Blue green flies found on sill coverd in Web. by Marc Taylor

I'd appreciate anyone who can help with where to look in identifying these two flies found tangled in spider web on my window just now. I apologise for quality of the images and am really looking for a broad direction not species level lift up.

I am also looking to hear anyone's tips for removing spider web short of picking it off, which I've done before but others may have tips to either make it less time consuming and more effective.

Thanking you in advance.

Is this Tabanidae? by Macrophoto

Hello All,

This is my first struggling I.D using Pjotr Oosterbroek's "European Families".   I think the enclosed photos Id this as Tabanidae haematopota pluvialis.   Perhaps some kind person could tell me if I've got it right or not.

Enjoy.
