Clusiid Fly

A small orange fly which appeared to be laying eggs on a decaying log.  Probably a female Clusia flava (Diptera: Clusiidae).

Photo taken in the Wilderness, Whiteknights Park, Reading, UK, on 2012-08-15.

I trapped this fly in a plastic tub, took it home, and took the following photo of it before releasing it.
