Dagger Fly

A dagger fly, probably Empis sp (Diptera: Empididae). [Note added 2010-05-10: Actually, the short proboscis and dark colour looks more like Rhamphomyia sp., possibly Rhamphomyia sulcata.]

On Saturday I had to take Zoe to Charvil for a piano exam.  We had a bit of time to kill beforehand so we went for a walk and I took these photos.

Photos taken in Charvil Country Park, near Reading, UK on 2010-04-24.
