    Very nice – the tachinid is a Peleteria, I think 🙂

    Great pics! You’d be happy to know I was talking to two kids about flies last night. They now know what a mosquito is! :o)

    These are excellent photos, Brian. Flies do not stay still very long, so you had a good eye and were quick to make these excellent captures. Congratulations!

  6. The bombyliid seems to be Geron. The dolichopodid is a Medetera sp. and the calliphorid is a Calliphora sp.
