Some recent fly shots from the garden
Brian V.

Think this is the Sarcophagid fly Amobia signata. They are kleptoparasites of solitary bees and wasps. This one was following a potter wasp around. Every time the potter wasp stopped to investigate something, the fly would land a couple of inches away carefully watching it.

Thanks Travis and Andres for the comments.
Andres not sure if it is what you were referring to in the doli pics but we have an outbreak of pollen dust over everything outside at the moment. I think it's from Cypresses.
