Spring Flings - Syrphus ribessi - Sarcophaga sp

Two Flies the First a Hoverfly Syrphus sp , about 12 or so in this genus which are hard to get to species without detailed exam ( not S. torvus -eyes non hairy ) but in this shot the Female with orange hind femora assists the ID and is likely Syrphus ribessi

The second a little less favourable Sarcophaga sp or Flesh Fly. These where all seen mating in the Spring sunshine

Both species Share one thing in common all having a Good Time in The Spring Sunshine
