Tiny Flies

It's now widely recognised that insect numbers in this country have greatly decreased in recent years, insect photo-safaris have become much harder work. However, yesterday at Dungeness , I checked the first big burdock plant I came across as these reliably host tiny "picture-winged "flies-and there they were. There were about 30 on this one plant, they allow close approach with the camera to reveal their beauty.

Internet searching suggests they are Terellia tussilaginis
