Small, very mobile fly, which I can not properly photograph for several years in a row. Moves by jumps. I see it always on Aegopodium podagraria.
Note that her wings and jumping legs are half reduced. Smile
This is 100% crop. More detailed photograph failed.

I may give the impression of Platypezidae but it is a species of Phora: tiny, velvety black fly with very glass-like, transparent wings; eyes of with a tendency to look bluish or purplish.
