I photographed this pairing on June 5, 2022 in southern Sweden, near Uddevalla at the edge of a forest near a pond.
Is it possible to determine the genus or species from the photos?
Thank you, Frank

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol
