A friend in Letsibogo, Botswana, caught these two shots of a moderate-sized member of the Stratiomyidae (I think!) but we both wonder whether anyone could narrow that down a bit.
Two photos. She estimated the size as 10-12 mm.
IDs, discussions or guesses would be welcome.
Thanks for attention.

Odontomyia sp. One of the few metallic species. They need a revision before you can get a species ID... very pretty fly

Martin, many thanks. That was most helpful.
Forgive my delayed reply; I haven't been "flying" much lately. But I shall pass this on.
Cheers,
Jon
