Under leaden skies with temperatures near zero, I decided to test Nikita's theory that diptera are an order for all-seasons. And in fact, the only creatures with the courage to move were the flies. Could this one possibly be Scathophagidae?

Photographed near Rome, Italy, 23-11-2005.

Thanks, Sarah
