|Fly, Phaonia species. In my garden light trap in Hayes on 14 June 2014.|
Starting with a few flies. Flies are quite a varied group, and I only photograph a few of them. I usually ignore bluebottles, greenbottles and house flies. Also, I don't seem to have any dung-flies from last year, and they are quite common and rather pretty. But this one, a Phaonia, caught my eye.

I usually have to rely on others to identify them, so I try to get as much visual information as possible.

I can place a lot of the hoverflies, too, but they don't tend to come to the trap and I have lots of photos of them elsewhere in my blog.
