Yep - first one is a hoverfly.

Seem a little noisy these shots. Did you crop them? How far away were you? Get closer :)

Thanks Brian (and everyone else) for the comments. Both are cropped-I was using a tripod with a 100mm I borrowed from work. I'm trying to get more keepers, handheld keeper ratio is very small. This was late evening, using flash w/ small aperture-trying to increase my DOF too much I think?
